Abstract

The Influence of Kinesiology Tape on a Functionally Demanding Eversion Sprint in Healthy Male Soccer Players

Ankle injuries are prevalent in soccer, with implications for athletic development, performance, and subsequent risk of reinjury. Injury prevention and management strategies have included the use of tape, but inhibiting movement can impair performance. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of kinesiology tape at the ankle joint during a functionally demanding eversion sprint.
