What should I know about wrapping a foot injury?


Answer by  emhaskey (685)

Never wrap too tightly and wrap from the foot upward toward the thigh in order to promote blood supply moving back to the heart.


Answer by  Laquesha (61)

Lightly wrap the injury and be careful not to pull too tight. You want to stabilize the injury; not make it worse. Make sure the wrap is clean.

When wrapping a foot injury it is vital that you apply even direct pressure to they injury. However you should make sure not to go overboard and completely cut off circulation as this would obviously be counterproductive.


Answer by  motliec (183)

When you wrap the foot you need to make sure you don't wrap it to tightly. You don't want to cut off the circulation to the foot. You also want to start the wrap closest to the toes and work it towards the ankle. The easiest way to keep it in place is to wrap the end around the ankle.

Do not use plasters.Apply ointment before dressing.While wrapping use clean linen.The injury will get curesd soon if it is airy.It is always better to apply medicine and leave it without dressing. If you insist to have dressing go to a nursing home daily to get it changed.Do not wear foot wears till you get well.

Depending on the type of injury, you would need to wrap the foot loose enough so that it does not stop blood flow and tight enough so that it does not fall off. If there is an open sore you should use antibiotics to clean it. In any case, consider consulting a medical professional immediately.

When you are wrapping the foot, make sure that you start with a clean, dry surface. Wrap the foot firmly and tightly (but don't cut off circulation).

Do not wrap it too tight and when you do wrap it make sure you get the most support from the wrap wehre the injury is. And do not wrap any higher than you hav too.
