Most commonly used taping technique
Provides patient with comfort w/out restricting
normal function
Evidence-based Literature Review
Effective in reducing ankle sprains and
providing mechanical restraint to excessive
ankle motion
May lose initial level of resistance rapidly
Pre-wrap facilitate effectiveness, allowing for
longer motion control
Ankle bracing is superior to taping
Still used widely by athletic trainers
7
Closed Basket Weave (Gibney) Technique
Used for newly sprained or chronically weak
ankles – Most common procedure
8
Open Basket Weave
Allows more dorsiflexion and plantar flexion,
provides medial and lateral stability and room
for swelling
Used in acute sprain situations in conjunction
with elastic bandage and cold application
U-shaped felt pad can be used to provide focal
compression
Aids in controlling swelling

Helps to manage glide, tilt, rotation and
anteroposterior orientation of patella
Accomplished by passively taping patella into
biomechanically correct position
Also provides prolonged stretch to soft-tissue
structures associated with dysfunction

Technique developed in Japan and widely used
throughout Europe and Asia
Can be stretched to 140% of original length
Provides constant tension (shear) to the skin
Therapeutic in that its effect occurs through
activation of neurological and circulatory systems
with movement
Can be used immediately post and during rehab of
injury
Used for edema reduction, pain management, and
inhibition/facilitation of motor activity
27
Mechanism by which Kinesio Tape works
Improving circulation and lymph by eliminating
tissue fluid or bleeding beneath skin
Correcting muscle function by strengthening
weakened muscles
Decreasing pain through neurological
suppression
Repositioning subluxed joints by relieving
abnormal muscle tension
Stimulates cutaneous mechanoreceptors
through pressure and tension on skin,
enhancing proprioception through cutaneous
feedback
28
Basic Application Principles
Apply tape from origin to insertion without minimal
tension for muscle support
Should be applied from insertion to origin during
rehabilitation
Muscle is placed on gentle functional stretch with
tape at ~10% of resting static length
Can be worn for 3-4 days
Latex free, cotton fabric
Heat activated adhesive
Comes in various sizes
Athletic trainers indicate…
It can provide support and stability
Requires specialized training
