Taping for posterior tibial tendonitis
Updated: Feb 15
In this video, I demonstrate how to tape your ankle and foot with rigid zinc-oxide tape to reduce the load on your tibialis posterior tendon. It's not a long-term solution, but can provide good short-term pain relief when you have posterior tibial tendonitis. Remember, if you need more help with an injury, you're welcome to consult one of our physios online via video call.
You can find more detailed advice about treatment for posterior tibial tendonitis in this article. If you find that this taping technique reduces your pain, it may mean that you would benefit from wearing supportive insoles in your shoes. Remember, if you skin turns red or itchy, it usually means that you're allergic to the tape and it's best to remove it immediately.
