  2. Preventative full ankle strapping
  3. Preventative 'Figure 8' ankle strapping

  5. Patella tendon tape

One of the first priorities in the treatment of an acute ankle sprain is to limit the amount of swelling. This strapping is designed for this purpose. As fluid typically accumulates around the malleoli, a 'horseshoe'of chiropody felt is used around this area.

Step 1

A horseshoe is cut from chiropody felt and placed around the lateral and medial malleoli.
