Is there any way to tape an ankle/shin to help reduce injury during running when suffering from a stress fracture.


Posted by denise

I have suffered a few stress fractures through the years (calanus and metatarsal).  I now suspect I have one in my low shin (close to the inside of my ankle).  I am resgistered to participate in a sprint triathalon in 4 weeks.  I am planning to focus on the biking and swimming and stop running until very close to the race.  However, I was curious if there is any way to tape an ankle/shin to reduce further injury for the runs I will need to do for race day and minimal preparation before.  Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

I can't help with the taping, but I would suggest that you not participate in the triathalon. If you really do have a stress fracture, that needs to be your highest priority.
