Objectives. The purpose of this study was the importance of applying Kinesio tape (KT) in relieving the pain in athletes' ankles using Y balance test and star.

Methods. 22 male athletes with average age of 22.33±1.37 were discussed with and without Kinesio tape. At first athletes didn’t use kinesiology tape on their deltoid ligament and did the (Y) balance test in 3 directions, then star twirling test (SEBT) in 8 directions that focused on the center of one plexus. These tests were repeated 3 times and all the stages of them were recovered after 24 hours and then the tests done on a pad and on a solid surface.

Results. Athletes in both tests on a soft pad experienced a high pressure on their muscles according to the position of their leg in plantar and dorsiflexion state;and they couldn’t finish the test.

Conclusion. The test showed that the Kinesio tape on a soft surface (pad) did have any positive effects on the muscles.
