Therapeutic Fascial Taping
- Ever wonder about the colorful tape you see on athletes during the Olympic games and professional sporting events? Now you can experience it yourself. These tapes are made of a flexible cotton with a wave-like glue pattern on the underside. They are used to increase range of motion and have a minor stabilizing effect. They work with your bodies proprioception - that means helping your nerves fire correctly so your body knows where it is in space. It gently pulls on the skin and fascia to facilitate nerve impulses in an area that might be lacking as well as creating a better channel for swelling to pass through. This tape also works very well on bruising as it allows more space for the swelling and pooling of blood to travel and leave from the injured area.
At RCC, we use ROCKTAPE. We find that this brand is superior to other brands on the market because it last longer and works better. ROCKTAPE is also available for purchase in their signature designs and colors.
Tape can be applied to low backs, necks, achilles tendons, ribs and even to bruises and swelling. The possibilities are endless. You will be amazed by the results!
