Weak ankles? Tape them to prevent sprains while trail running

Fed up with traditional taping techniques and cumbersome bulky braces? I found a great taping method that works well for me.

I began experimenting with different ways of taping my ankles to deal with the tough rocky terrain in my area. The technique I came up with restricts side to side movement while still allowing my foot to move up and down. So if you suffer from weak ankles, and you roll them a lot on trail runs like me, give this technique a shot.

Do you have weak ankles? Try this to prevent sprains while trail running

Please note: This is NOT a video on how to immobilize the joint after an injury! This is a video on how I prevent a sprain. If you are dealing with a serious injury please consult a doctor before attempting any trail run.
