RockTape turns down the volume on pain. More specifically, it runs interference on pain.
How it Works
Ever whack your shin, rub the injury and suddenly realize you feel better? When properly placed on the skin, RockTape interferes with painful signals directed toward the brain, helping you place your focus less on the injury and more on where it truly belongs: the healing process.
RockTape, alters the signals arriving at the brain, creating an interference that mitigates, if not eliminates, the sensation of pain. When this technologically-advanced kinesiology tape is properly applied, pain often becomes an afterthought. Many of our customers, in fact, call this effect “magic”. Some even think their injury has disappeared almost immediately.
RockTape works to change how your body interprets the pain of an injury. In essence, it turns down the pain “volume” that your body hears.
Decompressing Areas of Swelling and Inflammation
When RockTape is applied to the skin, a microscopic lifting effect takes place underneath the skin, as well as between its many layers. This allows the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly.
Research has shown that RockTape kinesiology tape works to attenuate muscle fatigue. In rehab, this is very important, not only for the parts of your body that are currently in pain, but also for the surrounding areas. These other areas often pick up the slack for muscles that are currently not working well.
Normalizing Muscle Tone
When someone is injured, fatigued, sick, or inflamed, the symphony of muscle action that normally takes place often falls out of tune. Your injured muscle loses its natural harmony, creating potential problems elsewhere. This can happen all over the body.
Research has shown that people with ankle sprains tend to experience altered activity of the nearby hip muscles, an often unexpected result of the original injury. To combat this, RockTape works to bring dormant muscle back to life, and help calm the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, providing the opportunity for the affected area to heal properly.
Distributing Physical Stress
Unlike conventional taping, which tends to prevent movement, RockTape allows full movement of the treated area. Through both its elastic properties and quick recoil ability, it can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and bone structure.
