Spray your skin thoroughly with the tape adhesive spray. This will aid in securing the athletic tape by making it stick stronger.
Cut pieces of the pre-taping underwrap. Position your ankle at a 90-degree angle and then use the pre-taping underwrap pieces to pad the areas around your ankle bone. This will help protect your skin from irritations from the athletic tape. Continue wrapping throughout, using the standard figure-eight design.
Take the athletic tape and form anchors at the top of the wrap. Put another anchor under the foot, progressing to the top. Cover all areas wrapped by the pre-tape.
Continue to add three stirrups and then wrap thoroughly using the figure-six tape design.
Make a mid-foot sling and apply a half-heel lock to your wrap for additional support.
