I want to start the post by asking you to watch this video on how a normal tape can affect the movement of a cat. Animal cant lie if something affects them. – shared by www.rocktape.com.sg
What is Rocktape?
Rocktape is a natural-hybrid product and consists of 97% cotton, 3% nylon and uses no drugs. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic acrylic based adhesive and contains no latex. When we manufacture Rocktape, we introduce a bias into the weave of the fabric so it stretches in one direction and not the other.
How it works? How can it help?
Rocktapes creates what we call a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism which lifts the skin away from the soft tissue. This allows blood to move into an injured area which accelerates healing and recovery. Rocktape is also great for correcting tracking issues in knees, shoulders or elbows. It can also be used to correct posture problems including those associated with pregnancy.
Rocktape gives a 180% elongation ( which means a 10 cm tape can be stretch to 18cm)
Tighter weave compared to other tapes
Longer lasting adhesive (personally I tried it on for 2 days and it still sticks nicely)
Method of taping which I learn from the course! (sharing for free!)
1. Muscle Injury/ Strain
|taping the quads
|every one paying attention!
a. First we must understand that if the muscle injury/strains/tear is too much rocktape will not work.
b. Applying the tape will helps to facilitate painfree movement, reduce swelling/bruising and help to sense body position if we are in a bad body posture.
c. 3 steps to tape!
i. Stretch the body part
ii. Stabilization tape (stretch tape 50%)
iii. Decompression tape (stretch tape 80%)
2. Swelling Reduction Taping
|for more blood flow!
a. Good for Grade 3 muscle tear *application of rocktape on after 48 hours of RICE therapy (rest, ice, compression, elevate)
3. Body sense and Postural Control Taping
|being tape by the doctor
a. Helps to place the body back into the right posture. The tape basically act as a reminder when you over stretch your muscle and you have to use your own muscle strength to pull back to the right position.
4. Power Taping
a. Helps with varies kind of sports to improve the power output, didn’t get to touch on this topic much this time round as they have a separate course for that! Would love to join that! www.rocktape.com.sg
