The Achilles tendon can also be strengthened with kinesiotape. However, this strengthening does not come from the body, but is brought about externally. Therefore, this method should only be used temporarily, for example when acute complaints exist.
In the case of overloading, the tape can have a supporting effect if you start to do sports again after a break. To strengthen the Achilles tendon, the tape is stuck in the form of a Y starting from the Achilles tendon. The base is attached under the sole of the foot and the thighs of the Y are each stuck to the side of the calf to just below the hollow of the knee.
Here the ends meet. A further strip runs from the sole of the foot over the Achilles tendon straight over the calf.
