Hallux Rigidus Spica Taping: Also For Bunions, Hallux Limitus, Turf Toe
The above video demonstrates a simple, but effective, taping to limit motion in the big toe joint (first metatarsal-phalangeal joint). Kinesio Tape is used 1" in width and 8 inches long. For painful problems like turf toe, Hallux Rigidus, Hallux Limitus, sesamoiditis/fractures, and bunions this taping can prove helpful. I look at it as I would an ankle brace for a sprain. There are various versions that can be tried, but the most common technique is demonstrated.
