Spica Taping with Buddy Taping of Metatarsal Pain

This was a YouTube comment to the video below that I received today. Glad people are being helped. Dr Blake

This video has helped me a TON!! I got some KT tape and applied it exactly as shown by Aphrodite here and my 2nd and 3rd metatarsal pain has COMPLETELY gone away!! :-)

I am so grateful for this video. I've gone from maxing out at 15 miles due to the pain to being able to run 26-30 miles. More than I ever thought I could do. Many thanks for creating this video!!

    1. I would try KT circumferentially around the foot as in this video. The tape has to cover the injured area. Hope it helps you. Rich

  2. Where can I find the tape used at the beginning of the video? What is the name of the tape? Thank you.

  3. Found it. I'm going to be attempting to tape my foot by myself but it looks like a better solution than the flexible clear tape I have been using as suggested by my podiatrist. Thanks.

  4. I have pain in my 2nd meta when trying to move it downward motion as well as upward. I would say more so downward. Is this common ? the last knuckle in that toe is also very painful to bend

    1. Yes, when there are joint restrictions it can hurt either way. Rich
