Abstract

In order to determine if the use of antipronation taping could be used to direct foot orthoses prescription, seven high school athletes with lower extremity or foot pain caused by overuse stress were taped for 3 days during practice sessions. A visual pain scale and the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure sports subscale were used to monitor pain and function improvement caused by taping. If the taping was effective, foot orthotics were fabricated and posted according to the change in foot posture created by the tape. After wearing the foot orthotics for 4 weeks, all athletes reported a substantial short-term (4-week) reduction in pain and an increase in function. The results of this case series indicate that changes in foot posture created by taping can be used to guide foot orthosis prescription.
