Now that I have done Rocktape Training modules1 & 2, I am now a certified Rock Doc…..but you can still call me Jon ;0).
“What is ROCKTAPE” I hear your scream…here’s the skinny.
1. It’s an adhesive kinesiology tape
2. Turns down the volume on pain…lifts the skin away from the muscle, which promotes positive changes in the bodies fluid, mechanical and neurological systems. Commonly people wearing Rocktape report less pain, swelling and tightness, greater awareness of the area and later onset of fatigue.
3. It normalizes muscle tone. When someone is injured, fatigued, sick, or inflamed, the symphony of muscle action that normally takes place with great accuracy often falls out of tune. This can happen all over the body. For instance, people who sprain their ankle tend to have altered activity of their hip as a result. RockTape can help bring dormant muscle back to life and help calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.
4. It spreads physical stress. Unlike conventional taping which is meant to prevent any movement at all, RockTape is meant to allow full movement of the taped area. It can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones.
