Kinesiology Tape for Foot Pad Pain

Learn about foot pad pain taping. The ball of the foot is where the toes join the rest of the foot. The area is very muscular and is the site where many athletes put the majority of the pressure during performance. Impact can be intense, twisting on the area is common, and without sufficient rest the area can become very worn and painful.

Pain presenting in the ball of the foot can be caused by a number of different conditions including heel spurs, degradation of the plantar fascia, fat pad contusion, stress fracture, compressed nerves, or inflamed bursas.

Typical treatment of these conditions includes most importantly rest and ice. Inserts and orthotics, as well as certain stretching exercises, can also provide relief.
KT Tape can help to promote the healing process by providing support and enhancing blood flow to the area. It’s very hard for anyone to stay off their feet, so often times foot problems take a very long time to heal. Those who have used KT Tape to alleviate the strain they put on their feet and promote healing have seen great results and decreased recovery times.
