Kinesio Taping – Rocktape
We use Rocktape in our office to help with injuries as well as performance taping. For injuries there are 3 main things that Rocktape helps with.
1. Rocktape helps lift the skin which helps relieve the pressure associated with swelling.
2. Rocktape accelerates bloodflow to the injured area to speed up healing.
3. Rocktape stabilizes the area without restricting movement so you can remain active.
Your probably asking yourself, well how does it work?
What does it do?
Rocktape is a kinesiology tape and is fantastic for treating common sports injuries like shin splints, plantars and runner’s knee. Rocktape also can increase endurance by promoting blood flow during an athletic event. Rock Sauce is the newest product and is a topical pain reliever. Rock Sauce is one of the most powerful pain relieving lotions you can buy over-the-counter. When Rock Sauce and Rocktape are combined, the athlete is completely revitalized.
How does it work?
Rocktape is a natural-hybrid product and consists of 97% cotton, 3% nylon and uses no drugs. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic acrylic based adhesive and contains no latex. When Rocktape was designed, the makers introduced a bias into the weave of the fabric so it stretches in one direction and not the other. This creates what we call a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism which lifts the skin away from the soft tissue. This allows blood to move into an injured area which accelerates healing and recovery.
How long will it last?
ROCKTAPE can be worn for 3-5 days. It is 100% organic cotton and can be worn while swimming or in the shower.
