RockTape is a special kind of tape known as 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.
While the use of kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes such as Michelle Wie, Adrian Peterson and Jason Khalipa, medical professionals have been using it to alleviate a wide variety of ailments, not just sports injuries.
RockTape is made from 97% cotton and 3% nylon. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic, acrylic-based and contains no latex.
RockTape is the world’s best kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain. RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect. Stretchier, stickier and stronger than the competition, RockTape is preferred by athletes and medical professionals throughout the world.
Dr. Bailey is a certified "RockDoc" and has been trained by RockTape to assess and apply RockTape correctly. Dr. Bailey has been to the Crossfit Games in 2014 to work on athletes during competition. Dr. Bailey has been applying RockTape to patients of all abilities for well over 5 years.
So why RockTape??
Reason No. 1
Unlike other kinesiology tapes made for rehabilitation, RockTape was created in the heat of competition. We knew first hand that medical tape would fail under race conditions, so we developed a lab in the Santa Cruz mountains where we could test our product until it met our standards.
RockTape may be higher cost, but when it’s all on the line, it’s nice to know you’ve got the best. RockTape is kinesiology tape evolved and enhanced, we did this to meet the demands of athletes but the net effect is simply the best kinesiology tape around. So whether RockTape is being used on international athletes, kids or arthritic octogenarians they all notice and benefit from the improvements we have made.
Reason No. 2
Stretching is good. Our research shows that by making our tape with a 180% elasticity, we allow the athlete fuller and better range of motion. Our competitors only offer a 130-150% stretch.
Can you feel the difference? To us, it’s like night and day. When we wear our competitors tape we feel like we’ve been bound – we don’t believe that’s what anyone wants to feel when you’re walking much less running.
