ROCKTAPE - Kinesiology Taping
ROCKTAPE is an elastic endurance tape designed for competition. ROCKTAPE'S unique unidirectional stretch pattern won't reduce your range of motion, but it will give you more game.
With its unique stretch and superior adhesive, ROCKTAPE creates a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism which delays fatigue, stabilizes joints, prevents ring and hand burns and promotes proper form.
Therapeutic taping is a way of offering the body support and stability without affecting the joint or muscles range of motion. Therapeutic taping works in a few different ways. Due to its elastic nature the tape creates a lifting effect on the skins surface, which in turn improves circulation and decreases pain and inflammation. Therapeutic tape is made of cotton and uses 100% medical grade acrylic adhesive.
The tape is totally latex free and has a 3-5 day wear time. The 3-5 day wear time allows the therapeutic benefits of the treatment to last until the tape is removed.
ROCKTAPE IS USED TO:
- Protect hands, wrists and shins during workouts
- Reduce muscle fatigue and promote blood flow for faster recovery
- Aid in injury treatment
- Correct tracking issues in shoulders and knees
- Reduce swelling
- Stabilize weak structures such as lower backs, hamstrings, and calves
- Correct dysfunctional biomechanics
- Increase proprioceptive stimulation
HOW IT WORKS:
Made for competition, ROCKTAPE is the only kinesiology tape engineered to meet the demands of endurance athletes like runners, swimmers and cyclist. Unlike other products, ROCKTAPE can be used both to 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 very specific areas of the body that are sometimes hard to reach, such as the shoulders, knees, and joints.
