Kinesiology tape is an elastic type of athletic tape designed to aid in healing. It may be used to assist in proper biomechanics, promote fluid movement, and reduce imbalances. Its unique and natural design allows for support and stability without restricting movement.
RockTape – The Pro-Athlete of Kinesiology Tape
First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today, kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
Unlike traditional athletic tape that binds and doesn’t stretch, RockTape is engineered to mimic the human skin. This stretchiness is the secret behind RockTape. RockTape stretches up to 180% of its original length but has amazing ‘snap-back’ or recovery. This is what gives RockTape its performance advantage over other tapes.
RockTape is made from 97% cotton and 3% nylon. The adhesive is hypo-allergenic, acrylic-based, and contains no latex.
Works for All – Not Just Pro-Athletes
While kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Michelle Wie, Adrian Peterson, and Jason Khalipa, medical professionals have been using kinesiology tape to alleviate a wide variety of ailments, not just sports injuries.
