Cut or tear each piece of tape long enough to encircle the injured and adjacent finger.
Apply one piece of tape between the first and second joints, and place another between the second and third joints (as pictured above).
The pieces need to be as wide as possible to ensure comfort and stability but still be narrow enough not to cover the joints.
Wrap the tape firmly but not so tight that it causes the fingers to swell, turn colors, or become numb. If this happens, remove the tape and try again with a new piece of tape.
If done properly, the injured finger can still flex and extend so that you can grip things, but it won’t be able to twist or move side-to-side.
