Arch Support with The Low Dye Tape Technique for Gymnasts

Low Dye Tape Technique for Gymnasts

We’ve been doing the low dye tape technique for gymnasts for over 3 years with amazing results. It’s actually what The X Brace is based on!

We use the low dye tape job for many things including the following:

  • Sever’s disease and we’ll do the low dye technique to see if The X Brace is a good fit for the gymnast
  • Arch pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Accessory Navicular irritation (when there is a non-coalition of the navicular bone in the foot)

It’s easy to do and it is very effective.
