ROCKTAPE / Fascial Movement Taping
Fascial Movement Taping was created as a comprehensive framework of taping for each phase of need, from reducing swelling in an acute injury, to helping outcomes in the rehabilitation phase of care, and finally as an adjunct to training or competition to improve performance and recovery.
Made for competition, ROCKTAPE is the only kinesiology tape engineered to meet the demands of competitive athletes, helping athletes manage fatigue and increase performance. ROCKTAPE can be used both to apply compression to promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling. With its unique stretch and superior adhesive property, ROCKTAPE creates a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism, which delays fatigue and stabilizes joints.
How It Works:
When applied over a stretched muscle, ROCKTAPE lifts the skin and accelerates blood flow to increase the amount of oxygen available to the muscles, which reduces fatigue overall. This decompression relieves pressure from the free nerve endings in the tissues that are responsible for pain. Additionally, ROCKTAPE promotes lymph drainage to remove toxins produced by the body during exercise. This reduces swelling at the site of an injury and contributes to the performance and recovery effects seen in athletes.
As ROCKTAPE lifts and creates shear patterns in the skin and underlying tissues, it provides stimulation to a variety of sensory nerves in the skin and underlying tissues. The skin and the connective tissues beneath it are filled with sensory receptors that are responsible for contributing to the brain’s sense of where the body’s parts are in space and through movement. This stimulation provided by RockTape helps promote proper movement patterns and stabilize muscles.
