Achilles Taping

The purpose of taping the Achilles is to prevent the Achilles from engaging in its full range of motion by limiting the dorsiflexion of the foot. This is intended to limit the stretching of the Achilles.

Traditional Achilles Tendon Taping (as shown in the accompanying diagram and video at the bottom left)  involves either the creation of a fan of 3 tape strips on the table which are then placed simulaneously on the foot attached at the anchors on the top at the calf and on the bottom at the ball of the foot, or the application of the 3 tape strips individually to the foot at the anchors. Modified Achilles Tendon Taping (as shown in the video at the bottom right) utilizes a Figure 8 technique. Both are widely used and serve their purpose well.

Traditional Techniques -

Anchors (blue):

  • Place 1 or 2 strips of tape around the lower calf muscle and the same around the foot at and immediately behind the ball. These are used to provide a starting and stopping point for other pieces of tape.

Fan Application:

  • Put the foot at between 15° and 30° plantarflexion (toes extended  downward).

  • Using the tape, measure the distance from the top anchor to the bottom achor. 

  • Tear 3 tape strips (yellow, green, aqua) of equal length as measured.

  • Cross the 2 outside strips (green, aqua) in an X shape over the center strip (yellow) to form the fan.

  • Secure the fan to the anchors (blue).

  • Secure the fan at the top and bottom with additional anchors (red) .

Individual Strip Application :

  •  Put the foot at between 15° and 30° downward flex.

  • Apply the central tape strip (yellow) and attach to the anchors (blue) while maintaing the flex angle.

  • Repeat the process with 2 additional tape strips (green, aqua) crossing the center strip (yellow) in a X pattern and attach each to the top and bottom anchors (blue).

  • Secure the top and bottom with additional anchor strips (red).

Modified Technique -

Figure Eight (no diagram):

  • Place 2 tape strips around the lower calf to form an anchor.

  • Beginning at the rear outter side of the anchor, apply tape downward and across the Achilles to the rear of the inner arch just in front of the heel.

  • Continue across the bottom of the foot and across the top returning to the inner arch.

  • Continue to tape across the bottom of the foot crossing the previous wrap and continue to the outside and up the outside of the heel across the Achilles and across the opening tape apllication ending at the inner rear of the anchor strip.

  • Repeat with2 or 3 additional Figure 8 tape applications.

  • Secure with an additional 2 anchor strips.
