Rock Tape is a form of Kinesiology tape and is Kinesiology Tapedesigned to help facilitate the body natural healing process by adding support to stabilizing muscles, joints, and ligamentous structures. The major advantage of this style of tape verses traditional athletic taping is the ability of the tape to stretch.  This provides supports to the joint being taped throughout its full range of motion rather than restricting it like traditional tape.  There are specific protocols when it comes to applying Rock Tape and this is where our doctors can help teach you how to use it properly.

How does it work?
When applied properly, the elasticity of ROCKTAPE lifts the skin away from the muscle, which promotes blood flow. Faster blood flow means more oxygen and more lymph drainage, which helps to remove Lactic Acid, delay muscle fatigue, and promote healing.

How long will it last?
ROCKTAPE can be worn up to 5 days. It is 100% organic cotton and can be worn while exercising, swimming or in the shower.
