Updated: Dec 1, 2023

In this video we demonstrate how to buddy tape your finger.

This is a great strapping / taping technique which can be used post sprain, strain or fracture to provide the finger extra support. This technique could be used to assist an athlete return to sport or during the recovery process when encouraging active assisted range of motion to improve finger flexibility.
