POWER TAPING WILL PROVIDE YOUR ATHLETES WITH AN EDGE OVER
THEIR OPPONENTS THROUGH ENHANCED PERFORMANCE.
ROCKTAPE’s half day workshop teaches kinesiology taping principles using an “open source” philosophy - we don’t believe there is only one correct way to tape. Participants will learn the principles that can then be applied to their own individual patients.
ROCKTAPE has also developed a new protocol for taping called “Power Taping”. This movement based taping technique embraces the concept of muscles acting together as a chain as opposed to in isolation.
The aims of applying ROCKTAPE to a specific muscle group are to:
- Modulate muscle activation
- Promote blood flow to the muscles
- Promote lymphatic drainage
- Assist in the removal of lactic acid
- Improve kinesthetic awareness
These functions provide the athlete with additional endurance and
ROCKTAPE is also used to promote a faster recovery for athlete’s soft
tissue and joint injuries by providing support and stability, while
increasing blood flow.
