Bruised Heel Taping
The aim of taping for a bruised heel is to compress the soft tissue under the heel increasing the natural cushioning of the foot and protect the heel from impact.
For information purposes only, always seek professional advice before attempting any self treatment.
What is required?
- One roll of non stretch zinc oxide tape about 1 inch or 2.5cm wide.
How is it done?
- Place an anchor strip horizontally around the back of the heel.
- Then place a support strip under the heel.
- Then repeat the first anchor strip over the top. Continue alternating support strips and anchor strips until most of the heel is covered.
