Kinesiology Tape at Barton Creek Chiropractic

{PRACTICE NAME} Kinesio Tape

Turn Down the Volume on Pain

RockTape is a unique kind of tape used at Barton Creek Chiropractic known as kinesiology tape. Ever walk your shin and rub it, and suddenly realize you feel better? RockTape on the skin can interfere with painful signals which are directed to the brain. When the signals arriving to the brain are altered, it does not produce the sensation of pain.  In fact, it helps to change how your body interprets pain, turning down the pain “volume” that your body hears.

Decompresses an Area of Swelling and Inflammation

When RockTape is applied to the skin, it has a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. This allows for greater blood flow to and from and area, all while allowing the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly. It also creates more room in between layers of fascia, muscle, fat, skin, and other structures.

It Delays Fatigue

Research has shown that RockTape on skin can attenuate muscle fatigue. In rehab, this is very important, not only for the parts of your body that are currently hurting, but also for the surrounding areas as they help to pick up the slack for muscles that are currently not working well.

It Spreads Physical Stress

Unlike conventional taping which is meant to prevent any movement at all, RockTape is meant to allow full movement of the taped area. Through elastic properties and quick recoil, RockTape can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones.

An Effective Combination

The combination of massage, chiropractic adjustments, specific postural stretching and exercising, and Rock Tape Kinesio-taping is designed to support the area, provide stability, help the chiropractic adjustment and massage last longer, all without limiting mobility!
