Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Taping has been widely used for athletic trainers to re-build the longitudinal arch and to relieve the tension of plantar fascia. It is important to know how efficient the tapes are in supporting the foot’s longitudinal arches for the athletes. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of non-elastic white tape and kinesio tape on foot pressure during level walking.
