Achilles Tendon Taping with Leukotape and Coverlet

This is a video I found that uses leukotape for the achilles tendon injuries. It is solid. I would cover the skin with coverlet so that the leukotape does not rip up the skin. I commonly actually go a little higher up the leg and split the top piece once or twice to fan out the tape. But, overall, wonderful video. Leukotape is the strongest tape I know. The photo below is meant to show the upper part of the tape split into two sections. Therefore, the part on the achilles is one piece, the part below is split to go around the heel bone and the part above is split to grab more of the leg (typically it makes it more comfortable and more powerful).
