Rocktape can be used to treat:

• 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

How it works

Rocktape 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. When we manufacture Rocktape, we introduce a bias into the weave of the fabric so it stretches in one direction and not the other. This creates what we call 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.

Rocktape is also great for correcting tracking issues in knees, shoulders or elbows. It can also be used to correct posture problems including those associated with pregnancy.

Fascial Movement Taping, taping movement, not muscles

Explanation

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.

Performance enhancement

While we can’t turn a 5 hour marathoner into a 3 hour runner, we do have methods to help you break the 3 hour barrier if you’re already close. When applied properly, Rocktape can help athletes decrease fatigue through better blood flow and improved form. These are the two most critical aspects of increasing performance in almost any sport.

How it works

We use Rocktape’s ability to accelerate blood flow to help delay fatigue. This keeps the athlete fresher for a longer period of time. We also use Rocktape to promote proper form; we can use it to tape an athlete into a position so that when they become fatigued the tape helps them keep proper form for longer periods. We can use it to encourage proper form in running, swimming, cycling, diving or just about any sports that depends on accurate and specific movement.
