Can anyone recommend best short term taping techniques for patients with Dorsal Midfoot Interosseous compression syndrome. Is standard Low Dye enough or is this better modified for this condition. Personally always use KT type tape as only tapes I find comfortable on the feet. WOuld appreciate your experience on best taping methods for this condition.
No video, but its simple .... it does not matter which strapping variation you use, you just need to make sure it plantarflexes the forefoot.
The cause of DMICS is when the forefoot dorsiflexion moments are greater than the plantarflexion moments. All you have to do to treat it is increase the plantarflexion moment/decrease the dorsiflexion moments - ie make sure the tape plantarflexes the forefoot.
