At Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™, we focus on treating our patients comprehensively and getting to the root of their pain. One beneficial tool we use in combination with others is RockTape®.
RockTape® is a specialized proprioceptive tool that is applied to slightly lift the skin. This creates more space between cells throughout the treatment area. As a result, it reduces inflammation, reduces pain, aids lymphatic drainage, and improves circulation. Depending on the patient, this helps with injury rehabilitation, athletic performance, injury prevention, and more. In most cases, it’s used alongside other therapies like our specialized Synergy Release Therapy for a more effective overall result.
To be effective, kinesiology tape needs to be applied in a very specific way. Our experienced providers at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™ always begin with a thorough diagnostic exam. If we determine that RockTape® will help you, we will also evaluate the best way to apply the RockTape® and use it in combination with other treatments. The process can use individual strips, “X” shapes, or “Y” shapes, applying them in precise areas and angles.
Depending on your specific needs, RockTape® can remain comfortably applied for three to five days at a time. The cotton fabric is breathable and water resistant, so you can even shower and swim without disrupting your treatment.
