How It works
Turn Down the Volume on Pain
Ever whack your shin, rub it, and suddenly realize you feel better? RockTape interferes with pain signals directed to the brain. This can cause an injury to feel as if it has been instantly healed. However, in reality, RockTape changes how your body interprets pain. Specifically by turning down the pain’s “volume” that your body responds to.
Decompresses Swelling and Inflammation
A microscopic lifting effect happens when RockTape is applied to an injury. That occurs both underneath and between the layers of skin. This causes the by-products of inflammation to dissipate at a faster rate.
Research has shown that RockTape reduces muscle fatigue. This is an important part of rehab, for the areas that are currently hurting and for the surrounding areas. Since they assist muscles that are currently injured.
Normalizes Muscle Tone
When someone is injured or sick, the symphony of muscle action that takes place can fall out of tune. This can happen all over the body. For instance, research shows that people who sprain their ankle tend to have altered activity of their hip muscle as a result. RockTape helps bring dormant muscle back to life and helps calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.
Distributes Physical Stress
Unlike conventional taping, which prevents movement – RockTape allows full movement of a taped area. Through elastic properties and quick recoil, RockTape can help distribute forces to other nearby areas.
