This application is for calf pain which can be pain in the muscle belly of the calf itself and have many causes now this could be from muscle fatigue a strain to the muscle, though if your calf is red, hot, or swollen- you should see your physician. Otherwise here is a technique you can try. Positioning for this application is to place the leg to be stretched back letting that heel come down- all the way to the floor and the knee in full extension okay, now step forward with your other leg just slightly and getting into a lunge position placing that calf on full stretch The first step in this application is to is to tear off the first strip of tape What I am going to do is tear the tape down the perforated middle -it will actually stop on the anchor end of the tape- down by the logo from here I am going to tear off the paper, off that anchor end And I’m placing that anchor with no stretch. And from here I can just deal with one strip at a time and I am going to go around the point of pain and in this case I am just going
to use a red dot to indicate where that is- and your pain may vary I am going around that point of pain- and
no stretch on this first piece of tape. This next arm or leg of tape again- no stretch on that as I lay that down around that point of pain and no stretch on the anchors on either end For the next piece- again I am going to form a Y-strip. Again tearing off the anchor and from here I am going to place that around the inside- or the medial side of the calf from here- just dealing with one strip at a time I am going to leave a little paper on the
end so I can handle the tape without touching it. I am going to put middle tension, or moderate tension on that strip as I lay that down across and above that point of pain- going around it- basically framing it. Then this long piece I
am just going to lay that down with it- basically framing it. Then this long piece I
am just going to lay that down with no tension. Same thing with this piece. Leaving myself a little piece of paper to handle as I put that on middle or moderate stretch laying that down. Once I am past the point of pain I am easing off that tension and then laying the end of tape down. From here I’m just going to rub that on with the paper backing- creating some friction and some heat to make sure that tape is adhering well to the skin And that is an application for calf pain.
