Rock Tape

While the use of kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams, Kerri Walsh and Lance Armstrong, the reality is that Rock Tape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.

There are a number of different brands of tape, I use Rock Tape as I have found it works best with the endurance athletes that I treat.

What is Rock tape used for?

• Achilles tendonitis
• Plantar fasciitis
• Jumpers knee (PFS)
• ACL/MCL issues
• Rotator cuff
• Groin and hamstring pulls
• Lower back issues
• Shin splints
• Tennis and golf elbow
• Pain associated with pregnancy
• Postural correction

Improving Sports Performance

Rock tape can help athletes improve form and decrease fatigue through better blood flow. These are the two most critical aspects of increasing performance in almost any sport.

For more information about the use of RockTape for specific sports, visit our dedicated TriathlonRunning and CrossFit pages.

How does Rock tape work?

When Rock Tape is manufactured, a bias is introduced into the weave of the fabric so it stretches in one direction and not the other. This creates a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism that lifts the skin away from the soft tissue underneath, which allows more blood to move into an injured area to accelerate healing and recovery.

What is Rock tape made of?

Rock tape is a natural-hybrid product and consists of 97% cotton, 3% nylon and uses no drugs. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic acrylic based adhesive and contains no latex.
