Taping with Kinesiotape for Bunions

Bunions produce instability in the foot that can lead to pain in the foot, ankle, knee, hip or back. They are a weak spot that need to be addressed, often times quite simply. What do we have at our disposal? Foot strengthening exercises, toe separators, foot orthotics, surgery, shoes, and taping. The video below will show you how to use taping of the big toe joint to stabilize a bunion. If you tape for a week, you may find some of your symptoms that you thought were separate from the bunion are actually related. I have links below to the foot strengthening exercises and toe separators.
