If you're someone who's experienced pain caused by swelling, strain, fatigue or inflammation, you've probably noticed the relieving effect that something simple like rubbing the affected area can have to temporarily reduce the pain. This is because when you rub that area on the skin, you're interfering with the pain signals sent to your brain. RockTape Kinesiology Tape Pattern Rolls use this principle to help athletes and regular people relieve their pain and exercise for longer thanks to its tighter weave, greater elasticity and stronger adhesive than other kinesiology tapes.
Who Can Make Gains with RockTape?
RockTape kinesiology tape is used by physicians and athletes the world over to treat a wide variety of medical ailments, and improve athletic performance, and RockTape has become the name to trust. Any athlete looking to speed up recovery from an injury, or relieve joint and muscle pain to get back to work sooner, will find RockTape to be an invaluable part of their sporting kit.
Decompression of Inflammation and Swelling
Once RockTape is applied to the skin, a microscopic lifting effect occurs beneath the skin and muscle layers. This gentle lift allows the by-products of inflammation to be removed from your system faster, helping you to recover more quickly than before.
Whether you're going through rehab or at the top of your game, fatigue is an important factor for the health of your muscles and joints. If you're recovering from an injury, the healthy parts of your body will often try to pick up the slack for the ailing ones, which can lead to re-aggravated or new injuries. Research has shown that applying RockTape to the affected areas can eliminate this phenomenon, and help to attenuate muscle fatigue, helping you to recover faster or perform longer.
Normalise Muscle Tone
If you're injured or tired, the symphony of muscle action that would normally take place with precision often falls out of tune. When this happens, it can affect your entire body. For example, people who sprain their ankle are often found to have disrupted activity in the hip muscle as a result. RockTape can alleviate this problem by bringing inactive muscles into use to ease the load of overactive ones. It makes groups of muscles work as one, helping your body coordinate as if it weren't hurt, allowing it to heal properly.
Unlike conventional taping that prevents movement, RockTape's tight weave and elasticity allow full movement of the affected area. With its quick recoil, RockTape can distribute forces to nearby areas through ligaments, fascia and even bones.
