First metatarsophalangeal joint strapping
Used for pain in first metatarsophalangeal joint by limiting dorsiflexion.
Use 1cm tape
Apply overlapping strips longitudinally from plantar aspect of hallux to just behind level of midtarsal joint – apply enough strips to cover plantar and medial aspects of joint. Hold toe slightly plantarflexed. Bind down ends of tape by encircling around toe and around midfoot -–do not apply strip around midfoot too tightly
