Practice English Speaking&Listening with: KT Tape: Peroneal Tendonitis

Difficulty: 0


Iยดm Chris Harper and with me is Makayla

and we're here to demonstrate an application for peroneal tendinitis.

This is when you may have pain on the outside portion

of the ankle just behind the ankle bone and up the side of the leg.

I'm going to indicate

this are of pain with a red dot just where you may have pain your pay maybe

slightly different above or below this area.

In newer texts books this muscle group is actually called fibularis.

Some causes of this may be overuse or trauma,

poor circulation, poorly fitting shoes,

running on uneven surfaces.

KT tape helps treat this condition by providing stability and support and helps

relieve pressure to reduce pain and may increase circulation.

For this application we're going to place the ankle in a neutral or ninety degree

position. We're going to take one full strip and we're going to twist and tear the backing


to create an anchor point on one end usually the logo end.

we're going to place this just to the inside of the heel bone

near the bottom of the foot, and we're going to angle this tape

so it's pointing towards the outside portion of the foot

We're going to remove the backing paper down to

the end of the tape

but leaving a little bit on there being careful not to touch the adhesive

she can hang on to that last of the paper.

You're going to place fifty percent stretch on this so stretching

a hundred-percent and then backing fifty percent.

We're going to apply this on an angle so it ends up behind the ankle


and then bending up the side of the leg right over the point of pain.

We're going to pinch that off.

Very good we're going to remove the backing paper the last little bit

and apply that last part of the tape

without any stretch so absolutely zero stretch on the end of that tape.

Okay, good, a little friction rub just to create a little heat and create good adhesion

of the tape to the skin

For the second part take another full strip.

Just like the first one we're going to twist and

tear the backing paper removing that

little end piece to create an anchor. We're going to place this approximately mid

foot on

the inside of the foot pointing backwards towards the heel

and we're gonna remove the backing paper leaving a little bit on the ends so

we don't touch that adhesive and again fifty percent stretch on this,

we're going to go right below that inside ankle bone

wrapping around just below the outside ankle bone

We're going to apply this down

this last little bit with zero stretch on that tale the tail end of that tape.

Give it a good friction rub.

Okay that looks great!

A few helpful tips with this application is to make sure you clean the skin very well

remove any or oils or lotion you may have on your skin's for better adherence

also if you wear a sock to sleep so when so

you're rolling around it doesn't roll the tape up.

Take care when taking shoes on or off or socks on and off as not to roll

the tape. Some complementary treatments

may include rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen.

Please seek care if you have severely swollen or painful area behind

that ankle or persistent symptoms.
