Taping the ankle has become common practice amongst both professional and amateur athletes. Whether you are a runner, CrossFit enthusiast or a soccer player, you probably feel like your ankle could use some extra support and protection.
Taping the ankle helps to restrict your range of motion, making an injury like a sprain or a tear less likely than if you weren’t taped up. This is especially important if you have weak ankles or if you have an ankle that has recently been injured.
Since taping the ankle helps to prevent re-injury, you should always wear tape when doing anything physically active post-injury. If you are suffering from Achilles Tendonitis, you may find that taping up the back of your ankle gives you some peace of mind if you’re going to be spending a lot of time on your feet.
