Rock Tape

Written By Mattia Spinal Care & Rehab Center, P.A. on July 14, 2021

Myofascial Taping (Kinesiology taping) is the latest taping technique that works with natural biomechanics to promote your body’s natural healing process a It also provides stability and support to your muscles and joints without, avoids restricting range of motion like original taping methods did, and provides a beneficial form of soft tissue manipulation.

At Mattia Spinal Care & Rehab Center in Orlando, we utilize rock taping for its ability to provide support, increase circulation, reduce pain, and improve the way your joints and muscles work.

4 Ways Rock Tape Helps You Heal

RockTape has a unique elastic trait shown to help reduce pain by gently lifting skin from muscle tissue. This promotes better lymphatic function, which translates into less swelling and pain.

Rock taping methods provide support in some many ways traditional taping couldn’t, including providing structural support. Rock Tape helps your joints stay in alignment while allowing you to move freely. This can help prevent further injury.

This small study on the efficacy of kinesiology tape on the knee showed it increased the space in the knee joint. A similar study produced the same results for the shoulder joint. Both studies believe that kinesiology taping helps reduce joint irritation while improving joint and muscle function.

Through several studies, taping has been shown to improve blood flow by up to 60%. Blood flow is critical to the natural healing process. Extra blood flow means extra oxygen, which translates into faster healing.
