Taping for a Bruised Heel

The aim of this taping is to compress the soft tissue under the heel to increase natural cushioning and protect the heel from impact.
What is required?

  • One roll of non stretch zinc oxide tape about 1 inch or 2.5cm wide.

How is it done?

  • Place an anchor strip horizontally around the back of the heel.
  • Then place a support strip under the heel.
  • Then repeat the first anchor strip over the top. Continue alternating support strips and anchor strips until most of the heel is covered.
