Plantar Fasciitis: Featured Taping

plantarOne of the hands-down most common taping we come across and are asked about at KT Tape is how to tape for Plantar Fasciitis.  This annoying and painful injury is a result of repeated strain on the plantar fascia (the thick tendon running from the heel of the foot to the ball.)  Repetitive stretching and tearing causes the fascia to become irritated or inflamed.

Luckily for all of you affected by plantar fasciitis, taping for this injury with KT Tape is a snap.  Our elastic therapeutic athletic tape is an inexpensive and effective tool to treat and deal with plantar pain.  Even on the foot when applied correctly, KT Tape kinesiology tape can be worn for up to five days, even through showering and exercise.

    All of your links for taping for plantar fasciitis lead to the same video, even though your text strongly implies that there is more than one way to tape for this problem. Are there more ways to tape, or is there only one?

    It would be very helpful if there were a diagram or drawing showing the taping. It’s not practical to tape while watching the video or to travel with the video.

    I really appropriate your picture with the steps for how to wrap a foot with Plantar Fasciitis. I like how you number each strip of tape. It can get really confusing with all the wrapping that takes place. I train for triathlons and can sometimes have heel pain from all the running I do. I’ll have to make sure that I have the right shoes and maybe try taping if the pain get’s really bad. Thanks for the post!
