Benefits Of Using RockTape Kinesiotaping

Find out how Rocktape might improve your athletic performance.

These days, it’s hard not to watch the Olympic games or a sporting event without seeing someone wrapped up in brightly colored tape. No, it’s not just colorful duct tape, this is kinesio taping and it could be exactly what you need to improve your next run or weightlifting session. Our Oswego, IL, chiropractor Dr. Eric Carson can help you decide if RockTape kinesio taping is right for you.

What is RockTape?

RockTape is a top brand of kinesiology tape that is often recommended by our Oswego, IL, chiropractor for a wide range of injuries and painful musculoskeletal conditions. It can also be used to prevent injury. Many people mix up kinesiology tape with athletic tape, but these are not the same. RockTape is more flexible and isn’t designed to restrict movement like athletic tape does. It also improves blood and lymphatic flow and improves how layers of tissue glide and move together.

What are the benefits of RockTape?

You’re curious about the world of Rocktape kinesio taping but you’re not sure it could benefit you. This is where our Oswego, IL, chiropractor can help you determine if the musculoskeletal issues you’re dealing with or the activities you’re involved in could be improved through kinesio taping. RockTape can,

  • Decrease pain
  • Provide functional support and a better range of movement
  • Reduce swelling
  • Activate certain muscle groups
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Prevent muscle fatigue and overuse
  • Correct poor posture
  • Alleviate joint or muscle pain

Rocktape is also hypoallergenic and water-resistant. So, whether you’re training for a marathon, preparing for the next Crossfit Open or simply working out for the fun of it, you may be dealing with discomfort or pain after training. If so, RockTape could help alleviate that lingering back, hip or knee pain. By simply lifting the skin and applying mild decompression to the area, kinesio taping can alter pain signals to the brain to alleviate discomfort.

Rocktape can address a wide range of sports-related injuries including but not limited to,

  • Shin splints
