Here we take you, step by step, through a number of common taping and strapping techniques used in soccer. Broadly speaking, these techniques are applied in the following circumstances:

  1. In the acute phase immediately following an injury. This is to prevent further movement which may aggravate the injury and also to provide compressive support in an effort to control the amount of swelling.

  2. During the active rehabilitation period to provide mechanical support and proprioceptive feedback to the damaged joint in an effort to reduce the risk of re-injury.

The techniques illustrated within this guide should not be used instead of rehabilitation from a Chartered Physiotherapist. Rather, the techniques should be applied by, or following the advice of, a Chartered Physiotherapist to aid the rehabilitation process.

  1. Compression strapping for an acutely sprained ankle
  2. Preventative full ankle strapping
  3. Preventative 'Figure 8' ankle strapping
  4. Offload taping of the Plantar fascia
  5. Patella tendon tape
