Rock Tape/Kinesio Tape
Rock Tape/Kinesio Taping uses a non-latex fabric with elastic properties to adhere to the skin. Due to its elastic tension, once the tape is applied to the skin, it provides a micro-level “skin lift” which promotes blood and lymph circulation at the region of application. Often used in conjunction with other modalities taping can decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin and provide support while, allowing patients to move, exercise, and perform physical daily activities without restriction.
