Subtalar Joint Motion Control Taping

March 3, 2016
 

**This is not for an ankle sprain**

This ankle taping is to support the arch, so it does not fall medially into pronation and to support the heel (calcaneus). Stabilizing the rear foot is very important so that the forefoot can be flexible and adapt to different surfaces.

Athletic tape is the best tape to use for this; you can also use hockey tape if you have some readily available, although it will stretch out a little more.

The tapping has a similar function as an orthotic where they stabilize the rear foot to slow down (the tape will stop) the pronation of the subtalar joint, from heel strike to mid-stance. It then provides substantial forefoot mobility to challenge both extrinsic and intrinsic flexors, from mid stance to toe off.
