RockTape!!! Are you are an athlete requiring help with this unique form of kinesiology taping?


Rocktape is a revolutionary type of therapeutic kinesiology taping product designed to aid in the treatment and healing of various sports injuries, as well as improve physical performance.


Rocktape was built with the athlete in mind. Rocktape not only works wonders for injuries but also assists in coordination and movement.


The idea behind Rock Tape is to increase the flow of fluid through an injured area, reduce lactic acid build up, increase blood flow to muscles, have better control over muscle contractions, reduce pain and vibrations and promote faster healing.


Athletes are taped based on movement standards, orthopedic testing, and physical exam findings.


Power taping protocol

Power taping protocol helps athletes extract every ounce of energy from their bodies and use it as efficiently as possible by taping the body as a functional unit and emphasizing an entire chain of muscles, according to how they work together; to achieve the win.


Ankle Sprains, Achilles Tendonitis, Golfers Elbow, Shin Splints, Low Back Disorders, Rotator Cuff Problems, Plantar Fasciitis, Swollen Ankles, Tennis Elbow, Calf Strains, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, etc. are some of the few conditions for which Rock taping is being used.


  • It can be used to compress or decompress an area, depending on it’s application.

  • Promotes blood flow

  • Reduce swelling

  • Reduce pain

  • Increase your awareness of a specific area that needs attention.

  • Activates or deactivates a muscle group to enhance performance or decrease risk of injury, respectively.

Uses

RockTape turns down the volume on pain.

Rocktape on the skin can interfere with painful signals which are directed to the brain. When the signals arriving to the brain are altered, it does not produce the sensation of pain. This is because it helps to change how the body interprets pain, turning down the pain “volume” that our body hears. Rocktape does so by affecting the nerve endings and different types of receptors in the skin of the injured area.


RockTape decompresses an area of swelling and inflammation

Rocktape has a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. This allows for greater blood flow and also allows the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly.


RockTape delays fatigue.

Rock kinesiology tape helps to pick up the slack for areas that are currently not working very well. They can attenuate muscle fatigue.


RockTape normalizes muscle tone.

Rocktape helps to bring dormant muscle back to life after injury and help calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.



RockTape spreads the physical stress:

Rocktape is meant to allow full movement of the taped area. However, through the elastic properties and quick recoil, it can help to distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones.
