Rocktape is a therapeutic kinesiology taping product designed to treat various injuries and improve physical performance. Common problems Rocktape can address include ankle sprains, tendonitis, golfer’s elbow, shin splints, back pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, and more. With this method of taping, Dr. Barrett addresses the body as a functional unit, taping to emphasize an entire chain of muscles according to how they work together.
CHIROWORx Spine & Rehab exclusively uses Rock Tape to support and stabilize joints and muscles, prevent injuries, and treat pain. When applied by a certified clinician, the support and stabilization provided by Rock Tape does not affect circulation or range of motion. Unlike other athletic tapes, Rock Tape is specifically designed for durability and can last for days, even under harsh conditions.
Rock Tape is applied to any region of the body that has sustained an injury or that is experiencing discomfort. Due to it’s design, when Rock Tape is applied to the skin, it lifts the skin away from the soft tissue underneath, allowing increased blood flow to the injured area. This, in turn, accelerates healing and recovery.
Anyone who has a musculoskeletal injury or who is looking to improve performance or can benefit from Rock Tape. While it is great for is for treating common sports injuries like shin splints, runner’s knee, it is equally as effective for non-sports injuries and conditions such as carpal tunnel, shoulder pain, or general back pain.
Regular athletic tape is not designed to increase blood flow or to accelerate the healing process. Rather, it is meant simply to stabilize the part of the body it covers. Rock Tape, on the other hand, is specifically designed to facilitate healing, and when applied by a certified clinician, it has proven effective at relieving pain stemming from a variety of conditions.
