Good technique for bunion kinesio taping (intermetatarsal angle)?

    I´ve had instructions from physiotherapists and also checked out internet videos of how to kinesio tape my bunion, so that it wouldn´t get worse and disturb my balance. Taping the big toe to point more straight and apart from the second toe seems quite an easy task with different techniques.

    But the question I´m wondering is how to tape the metatarsal bone more straight? Should I place a wide I-tape just below the metatarsophalangeal joint and tighten tape around the distal part of the metatarsal, so that the intermetatarsal angle gets narrower? Or should I rather place tape around the metatarsophalangeal joint and tighten the intermetatarsal angle narrower from there? Would the last mentioned technique be bad for the mobility of metatarsophalangeal joint?

    Thank you so much if anyone offers any point of view!
