A sprained ankle can happen very quickly and suddenly, when the foot is twisted or turned in unexpectedly. Ankle sprains are the most common foot injury and the most common orthopaedic injury seen by doctors. A sprained ankle can occur during an athletic event or just by a missed stepping on an uneven surface.
Southwest Orthopaedic Physical Therapy and Kinesio Tape were at the USA Track & Field Indoor National Competition in Albuquerque, NM the weekend of February 26-27, 2011 taping athletes for their events. The event was held downtown in the Convention Center, full of athletes from all over the globe and all types of events from running to throwing to jumping. During Saturday's events, there were two local physical therapist and Kinesio Taping Practitioners on hand to help out the athletes, David Garcia, PT, CKTI and Leslie Boone, MPT, CKTP.
Kinesio Tape has become very popular as a method of taping joints and sport injuries since the olympics. Kinesio® Tex Tape is an elastic therapeutic tape developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 35 years ago in Japan. Since then, Kinesio® Tex Tape Gold™ has become the standard for therapeutic and rehabilitative taping.
