Applying a Compression Wrap for a Sprained Ankle
1. Hold the loose end of the bandage at the side of the foot. Wrap the bandage around the ball of the foot once, keeping it somewhat taut with a light pull.

2. Slowly start circling all way around the arch of the foot. Pull the bandage diagonally from the bottom of the toes across the foot's top and circle it around the ankle. Now bring the bandage diagonally across the top of the foot and under the arch in a figure-eight pattern.

3. Wrap the bandage around the felt piece so it stays in place under the anklebone. Continue around the ankle and foot in a figure eight, moving toward the heel on the bottom and toward the calf at the top of the eight.
-The wrap should cover the entire foot and end several inches above the ankle.

4. Using the clip fasten the bandage.
-The wrap should be snug but should not cut off circulation to the foot.
