Kinesiotape has many great qualities, but does not help Ankle Stability

https://bmjopensem.bmj.com/content/bmjosem/6/1/e000604.full.pdf

     I use Kinesiotape and Rocktape in my office all the time. The study above documents that these flexible tapes are not strong enough for ankle stability, even those I have found them useful to helping activate weak muscles and biofeedback functions. The ankle motion is too strong. However using Kinesiotape on less stressful joints (big toe joint, MPJs, midfoot, and at muscle attachments) is very helpful.
