Description of Rock Tape:
When Rocktape is manufactured, it introduces a bias into the weave of the fabric so it stretches in one direction and not the other. This creates a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism which lifts the skin away from the soft tissue. This allows blood to move into an injured area which accelerates healing and recovery. Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) is the application of Rocktape to support sport-specific fascial chains. Using tape, we can better engage and coordinate an athlete’s movements to increase efficiency and reduce fatigue. Rocktape‘s unique properties reduce swelling, accelerate blood flow and help coordinate movement. When applied properly, Rocktape can help athletes decrease fatigue through better blood flow and improved form.
Benefits of Rock Tape:
Intercepts Pain Signals
RockTape runs interference on pain. When RockTape is applied properly, it changes how your body interprets pain by affecting the nerve endings and different types of receptors in the skin of the injured area. When the signals arriving to the brain are altered, it does not produce the sensation of pain.
Decompresses an area of swelling and inflammation
When RockTape is applied to the skin, it has a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. This allows for greater blood flow to and from the area, all while allowing the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly.
Research has shown that RockTape on skin can attenuate muscle fatigue. In rehab, this is very important, not only for the parts of your body that are currently hurting, but also for the surrounding areas as they help to pick up the slack for muscles that are currently not working well.
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. RockTape helps bring dormant muscle back to life and help calm down overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, allowing it to heal properly.
