Learn how to tape your feet to prevent plantar fasciitis
When used along the correct shoes, taping your feet can significantly reduce plantar fasciitis pain.
Starting in the arch, apply a strip of silk tape, extend it around the back of the heel, then back towards the base of the pinky toe.
Overlap at (approximately) 50% the second strip in the same direction as the first piece.
Apply with tension the 2" silk tape at the back of the heel along the bottom of the foot and end at the ball of the foot.
Step 4 & 5
Overlap horizontally across the bottom of the foot starting at the level of the heel bone and extending to the ball of the foot.
Starting at the outside of the pinky toe joint, apply the tape around the back of the heel, and end at the inside of the big toe joint.

Thanks for bringing to my attention that tightness in the foot can be a sign of plantar fasciitis. My husband started a new job that requires a lot of standing, and he’s been complaining about having pain in his heel. He has also mentioned that his foot feels tight, so maybe we could visit a professional to see if it’s plantar fasciitis.
