End the tape on the dorsal/lateral aspect of the mid foot

Purpose
to sustain internal rotation of proximal phalanx of big toe after MWM

Painful first metatarsophalangeal joint with extension or flexion

IMPORTANT information and notes:
  • If you make it worse do the reverse (internal rotation)
  • To avoid skin irritation use a commercial underwrap to protect the skin from friction and chafing.
  • Use non-stretch sports tape (20-25 mm) with underwrap (to avoid skin reaction)  
  • Never leave the tape more than 48 hours
  • If there is any irritation remove the tape immediately.
  • Ensure that after taping the provocative movement is less painful and ROM is improved.
  • Ensure NO PAIN, no discomfort
