    How to tape for heel pain

    1. Prepare one full strip and two half-strips of kinesiology tape. 
    2. Sit down and position your affected ankle by crossing it over your knee. Flex your ankle and toes up. 
    3. Get the full strip and anchor it towards the heel. Then, with the remaining tape, apply a moderate stretch directing it towards the back of the heel. 
    4. Get one of the half strips and apply a moderate stretch in the middle of the tape. Apply the center of the strip at the bottom of the heel. Bring both ends of the tape up to the inner and outer sides of the heel. 
    5. Get the other half strip and apply a moderate stretch. Then, apply the center of the strip over the back of the heel. Bring the ends to the inner and outer sides of your foot. 
    6. Rub the tape to activate the adhesive.
