Low dye taping is a good taping technique for anyone with arch or heel pain including conditions like plantar fasciitis or posterior tibial tendinitis. Low dye taping can provide you with arch support during activities when it is hard to wear orthotics such as in ski or snowboarding boots, cycling shoes, cleats or rock climbing shoes. Low dye taping can be helpful during barefoot activities too such as dancing, martial arts, yoga, or volley ball.
What you'll need: 1 and 2 inch athletic tape. Spray adhesive for skin can help athletic tape stick better and longer.
