The development of chronic ankle instability (CAI) is common following a lateral ankle sprain. Taping using non-elastic and Kinesio Tex (KT) tape remain popular treatment strategies. The purpose of this investigation was to determine if KT tape improves static and dynamic postural control relative to non-elastic tape and a control condition. Twenty-four participants completed all three conditions. No immediate improvements in postural control were noted in either taping condition. Both non-elastic and KT tape improved perceived stability relative to the control condition. In conclusion, non-elastic and KT tape should not be used to immediately improve postural control in CAI participants.
