In addition to reducing injury risk, taping may also influence the activity of the muscles about the ankle joint, including the tibialis anterior (TA), peroneus longus (PL), peroneus brevis (PB), and soleus (SOL), as they are not only involved in movement, but also act as ankle stabilizers (Gribble et al., 2006; Hertel, 2002; Ross et al., 2004; Wilkerson, 2002).
