Bruised Heel Taping


The aim of this bruised heel taping is to compress the soft tissue under the heel to increase natural cushioning 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.
