Depending on its application, it can also be used to activate or deactivate a muscle group to enhance performance or decrease risk of injury.
Because of its versatility and unique design (in comparison to other kinesiology tapes), Rocktape is used for a wide variety of applications:
Kinesiology Taping for Sports
Rocktape was built with the athlete in mind. Rocktape not only works wonders for injuries but also assists in coordination and movement. For instance, when athletes start to fatigue, they break form. Once form is less than optimal, so is performace, because form and function are interconnected and co-dependent.
We tape athletes for their injuries based on movement standards, orthopedic testing, and physical exam findings. However, what is a unique aspect to the training behind Rocktape is the use of PowerTaping protocol, which helps athletes extract every ounce of energy from their bodies and use it as efficiently as possible. How? By taping the body as a functional unit, emphasizing an entire chain of muscles according to how they work together to achieve the win.
