One of the most common taping applications 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 to the ball of the foot). Repetitive stretching and tearing causes the fascia to become irritated or inflamed. The majority of people will suffer from plantar fasciitis at least once in their lifetime.
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. When applied correctly, KT Tape PRO kinesiology tape can be worn on the feet for up to five days, even through showering and exercise.
