For preventing reinjury, H- taping your fingers is more effective than traditional circumferential taping. To H- tape, tear a four- inch piece of athletic tape from the full width of the roll. Then, tear from each end to leave a ½ ” bridge connecting the two ends. Place the middle section along the palmer side of the joint in the middle of the finger. Wrap the section of the finger closer to the hand first; b end the taped joint to 30 degrees and wrap the other section of the finger.
