12 Sprain/Strain Taping Functions
Anchors(2)- to secure tape components to it Stirrups(3)-prevent inversion or eversion Close down-secure area Figure eight(1)-prevent inversion or eversion Heel locks(2pr.=4)-locks in the heel Horse shoes(3)-secure posterior heel Figure eight (1)-same Close up-secure area 1 anchor Close down 2 anchor Close up Heel lock(4)
