Acti-Tape Step by Step Instructions: Heel Spur Support / Flat Foot Pain Relief

1.

  • Lie in a face down position with feet hanging over the edge of a bed. Raise the foot slightly with a towel under the ankle. Apply one end of an I-strip under the heel.

2.

  • Tilt the ankle slightly inwards. Apply the strip upwards with a slight stretch along the inside of the calf, covering the ankle. Smooth down the strip firmly. 

3.

 
  • Position the foot at a right angle. Apply the base of an Octopus-strip on the heel with the fingers of the strip pointing towards the toes. Apply the fingers of the strip one by one without stretch in a fan shape.

 

4.

 
  • Smooth down all the fingers of the strip firmly to complete.
