How to Tape an Ankle I have been a student trainer for three years and I plan on becoming an athletic trainer when I finish college I have attended two summer workshops on athletic training I have also worked with football and basketball teams at my high school and in junior college This by far does not make me an expert on how to tape but I do know how to tape an ankle properly While I am tempted to summarize the process in a single suggestion do not get the tape too tight I will take you step by step through the entire process of taping an ankle It has been my experiences that mens feet smell worse than womens feet If the smell is too bad let the foot air out before you begin to tape it in time you will no longer smell the feet Have the athlete to remove hisher sock and any dirt lint etc from the bottom of the foot The most important thing to remember is to make sure that the foot is pulled back toward the athlete and that they do not lie down This is crucial in keeping the ankle in the proper alignment Spray the foot with Tough Skin QDA or the tape adherent of your choice You will want to spray some on the shin and calf of the leg as well Spray up the leg only as far as you will be taping The tape adherent will help the pre-wrap and the tape stick to the skin Next apply a layer of pre-wrap Do so by starting about an inch from the base of the calf and carefully wrapping the pre-wrap around the leg and the ankle up to about an inch from the base of the toes Make sure all skin is covered If skin is showing on the heel go back over it with more pre-wrap until it
