Perhaps the most problematic factor when dealing with foot & ankle pain is that the foot is one part of the body that cannot rest for day-to-day life to continue – its tissues are forever under stress.

Strapping with a hypoallergenic sports tape is a simple yet very effective technique which can be employed to offload specific areas of the foot for up to several days, and there’s no need to keep the foot dry during this time. Strapping is often used to offload the foot while custom foot orthotics are being created to permanently offload the problem area. Sometimes special self-adhesive compression bandaging can be used for particularly inflamed injuries.
