To report the effects of ankle balance taping for a patient with chronic ankle instability (CAI).
A 33-year-old man with a 10 year history of chronic ankle stability.
ABT with kinesiology tape was performed for 2 months (average, 16 h/day) around the right ankle.
At the end of two months, no ankle instability was noted when ascending and descending the stairs, jumping, turning, operating the pedals while driving, and lifting heavy objects.
The repeated use of kinesiology tape in ankle balance taping may be an effective treatment for recovering the ankle stability of patients with chronic ankle instability.
