Sometimes Rocktape is called “duct tape” for the human body because it is so versatile!
It can be used to:
- Compress or decompress an area, depending on it’s application.
- Promote blood flow, or it can be used to help drain swelling.
- Decrease pain and can also be used to increase your awareness of a specific area that needs attention.
- Activate or deactivate a muscle group to enhance performance or decrease risk of injury.
Rocktape not only works great on injuries but also assists in coordination and movement. For example, when athletes start to fatigue, they break form. Once form is less than optimal, so is performance! Rocktape can help an athlete maintain optimal form.
Because of its versatility, Rocktape is often used for a wide variety of applications:
A unique aspect to the training behind Rocktape is the use of PowerTaping protocol, which helps athletes extract every ounce of energy from their bodies and use it as efficiently as possible.
How? By taping the body as a functional unit, emphasizing an entire chain of muscles according to how they work together to achieve the win.
Injury taping for athletes is first based on movement standards, orthopedic testing, and physical exam findings. Rocktape can then help reduce pain, coordinate movement, restore function, and get you back in the game faster.
Rock tape is a great tool to help re-train and correct posture imbalances. Because of it’s ability to help coordinate muscle groups, it works great in postural restoration applications alongside chiropractic treatments.
