The Kinesio Taping Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Our office exclusively uses ROCKTAPETM for our taping protocols.
How it works:
"Made for competition, ROCKTAPE is the only kinesiology tape engineered to meet the demands of endurance athletes like runners, swimmers and cyclists. Unlike other products, ROCKTAPE can be used to both apply compression to promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling.
When applied over a stretched muscle, ROCKTAPE lifts the skin, accelerating blood flow to increase the amount of oxygen available to the muscles, which reduces fatigue. ROCKTAPE also promotes lymph drainage to remove toxins produced by the body during hard efforts. These combined effects are powerful: they allow the athlete to go harder for longer periods of time. And unlike compression garments, ROCKTAPE can be applied to a very specific areas of the body that are sometimes hard to reach, such as shoulders, knees, and joints."
