Kinesiotape is an elastic tape that is applied directly to the skin. Kinesiotape differs from traditional athletic taping because rather than restricting movement, it allows full movement of the taped area and can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascial system.
We proudly use RockTape in our treatments, due to its superior quality and durability. It is latex-free, hypoallergenic, water-resistant, and can remain on the skin for several days. The application of RockTape may help to:
- Reduce swelling
- Relieve muscle and tendinous tension
- Improve myofascial mobility
- Provide joint support
- Facilitate proper movement patterns
- Promote proper postural tone and alignment
- Decrease pain
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective manual therapy technique, that involves applying sustained pressure into the myofascial tissue in areas of restrictions, to eliminate pain and restore motion.
