Athletic Training Taping Techniques

 
Welcome to How I Tape Athletes!

Shown are videos and pictures of different taping techniques. These are not the only way to tape an athlete but are the most commom methods that I use in the athletic training room on a daily basis.
 
 
 
 

  Ankle Taping 
 
The following two videos, Ankle Taping part 1 and 2, demonstrate the basic taping technique that I use on athletes. 
 

The first video shows the preparation including pre-wrap, anchor strips, stirrups and horseshoes.

The second video shows the four heel locks and one figure eight, taped in a continuous manner, followed by your closing strips.

 
Note: for added support two figure eights can be applied
