With more and more elite athletes using rocktape, its popularity has been rising in the general community as a fantastic adjunct to a physiotherapy based management plan.

The major benefits of Rocktape include:

  1. Assisting in pain reduction
  2. Helping to increase flexibility
  3. Aiding in swelling reduction
  4. Hypoallergenic
  5. Water resistant so lasts longer than standard tape

Rocktape works by using its elastic property to form convolutions in the skin. This works to decompress the tissues below the skin to enhance blood and lymphatic flow, improve the mechanical gliding between tissue layers, and improve body awareness and pain perception.

Rocktape may assist:

  1. Posture
  2. Bruising and swelling
  3. Cramping and muscle pain
  4. Joint pain

All of our staff are trained in the correct application of Rocktape and are available to give advice on its use in your injury management or optimising your performance. We have just had another update from Rocktape expert Steve Stahl and have plenty of tape in stock.
