Kinesiology taping, RockTapeTM, also known as K tape is an effective treatment modality used by our therapists on a daily basis. It can be used in a number of different ways to achieve a certain benefit. From reducing bruising or swelling, to helping muscles activate or calm down, kinesiology tape has a wide range of usage!

By simply applying the tape to the skin in a specific way, a bio-mechanical lifting effect takes place to decompress the tissues under the skin, decompress pain receptors, increase blood flow, which all aids in increases the healing process and reducing pain.
Other benefits of using RockTapeTM include the increasing of movement awareness called proprioception. The kinesiology tape is used to help maintain a more ‘normal’ biomechanical movement, stimulating certain muscles to behave slightly differently, increasing the stability of joints, reducing pain, reducing the demand on healing muscles, tendons & joints along with repairing tissues and delaying the onset of muscle fatigue. It is an effective treatment tool for helping with the recovery of different injuries.
Kinesiology tape also has great benefits as mentioned above with the reduction of swelling and bruising faster than if left untreated – with our therapists seeing great results with post-surgery swelling and impact bruising.
