The problem I have with the tape is keeping it stuck.
RockTape is the world’s best kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain.
How does it work?
RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect. Stretchier, stickier and stronger than the competition, RockTape is preferred by athletes and medical professionals throughout the world.

Except for the occasional "bad roll" I have had very good luck with this tape. Recently one of two rolls I ordered didn't stick and a replacement is "on the way" no questions asked. I have used this for 2 years and am very happy with it
Rock tape is amazing.
Since taking the FMT-1, I have been taping my clients with great success. They are reporting less pain, faster healing and greater movement and stabilization in the joints I tape.
Rock tape has saved my life from daily plantar faschiitis pain to completely pain-free feet! I am amazed a little piece of tape can make such a big impression. The only issue I have is the stickiness of the tape is inconsistent. Sometimes it lasts 5 plus days, sometimes the corners come off within an hour. However, when I wrote the company to complain, they sent me a free replacement roll, even though I ordered from Amazon instead of them directly! I was very impressed with this standing behind their product even though it was bought through another dealer.
Most recently I have been taping an Achilles that has been a little weird. Not hurting exactly, but sometimes I am "aware" of it. The Rock Tape has stayed on through 2 runs, several showers, a weight workout, and even a pool workout. It probably would have lasted longer but I removed it to let my skin see some daylight and to have a fresh application for a long run. I like the colors for races, but with the beige, most people don't even notice so I can keep it on for work and don't get lots of questions. V
I have used my fair share of rocktape but this is the first time I've used the beige. The first 3 inches of the roll were unstretched (smaller than the paper) and fraying. I've never had this issue before. The adhesive while better than most tapes didn't seem as strong when applying it either. If this is normal for the beige I think I'll stick to the fun designs instead.
I have had a high rate of success as reported by my clients and from personal experience in the following areas: Pain management, joint protection, reducing hypermobility, increasing stability, neurobiofeedback for muscle guarding and excessive compensatory muscle contractions and fall prevention by taping for fascilitation of muscle groups. In addition, it sticks for 3-5 days, after showering and even swimming although it looses some of its effectiveness in above strategies.
We order Rock tape for use at an Occupational Therapy office. The quality is superb.
My P. T. introduced me to this tape while I was receiving physical therapy and it was a game changer for me. My knee has degenerative arthritis and the rock tape has allowed me to enjoy pain-free work outs and gym training sessions. I love it's "staying" power and can wear it and shower in it for up to 5 days before it needs to be replaced
I get shinsplints really easily and this tape is a life saver! I got beige because sometimes you just want your tape to blend in. Plus ladies- I found that this stuff works wonders on those shoes that are cute but cause blisters. put a little strip where its tight or chafes and no more blisters! Ive used it with gym shoes and dress shoes, no one even notices. Best of all it blends in and is stickier than bandaids :)
We have used other brands and have found Rock Tape to be the best. We love the variety of choices as sometimes people want to have fun with the patterns and sometimes people don't want it to draw attention.
This review is not for the tape as the tape is what it is; if you know how to use it then great, if not take a course or seek someone who is trained. This review is for after the purchase of the tape. Rocktape always sends the tape quickly and product arrives quickly and is what I order. I even occasionaly receive some bonus quick strips. Great company to work with; reccomend over other brands!
I wanted bulk tape and you did not have ANY IN ANY COLOR IN STOCK so I got shuttled over to little rolls which doesn't work well for my office.
Not everyone, including therapists and doctors recognize the benefits of Rock Tape. But once you have used it correctly, you will want to tell others.
Rock tape works like no other. I get instant relieve when I rock tape!
I went to a workshop in Columbus, Ohio about a month ago and started using the tape on my clients. I am a massage therapist and personal trainer. I have had success with all clients.
We've tried 'em all. Rock Tape lasts 4-5 days. Beats all the others.
I love all rock tape, but sometimes my patients don't want it to show so much. This color is fantastic for that.
This tape performs the best I have used it is a great product. Our Clients love all the different design choices.
I have been using this tape for 2 weeks now in my practice and so far the reviews are good.
Had an issue with some tape and it was quickly rectified and replaced
I have a foot fall and this tape helps a lot to energize the muscles so that I can lift my foot. It also seems to help reduce the edema induced by recent surgery.
My coach changed the way I push and the result was more power AND tendonitis in my knee. My chiropractor applied RockTape and I was able to continue skating while recovering. It stays on through multiple practice sessions (and showers) and the beige color does not show through my tights. I highly recommend this product!
We love this tape! A lot of our patients have been using it and are loving the results!!
Great product! I am a parent of a softball player. wish there was more info on this product. It greatly reduced her shoulder pain. she is allergic to the adhesive.
This product actually works! It sticks on for days and days (unlike the other brand). You can feel the difference in the texture of the tape and that it is tougher.
The color blends in with most skin tones and people love the discreteness of it for everyday wear on visible areas such as the arms and shoulders.
Exactly what we were hoping for! Its hardly noticeable when our cheerleading patients use it for competition! We love all RockTape colors and designs!
Students love this color very much!
My patients can really tell a significant benefit when using rocktape.
Since clients prefer the beige color, I would continue to order more of them. I personally like the feel of it.
The Rocktape helps support my high arches. Simple as that. Feels better.
This is an amazing product! I am an avid swimmer. Unfortunately, I also suffer from arthritis in both shoulders. As my discomfort increased, I was afraid I would have to give up swimming. Then my chiropractor applied Rock Tape to my shoulders and arms and the relief I felt was almost instantaneous. In fact, it is so effective that I find I don't need to rely as heavily on anti-inflammatory drugs! I'm telling you this stuff is wonderful! I will ALWAYS be a customer!
Love this product. It's stretchy, sticky and stays on for several days, even in the surf. It's been holding this old body together for quite some time. Thank you!
We order this when people don't like the variety but like the tape.
We love all the different rock tape! All the colors and prints are wonderful for all ages.
As a Doc I have been using the original K Tape for years on my patients and myself, and can say that Rock Tape far outperforms it. Stickier, stretchier, and the material feels more durable. With the proper skin prep I have had the tape stay on for 8 days! Thanks for the great product! I would like 2 inch marks on the back though.
Stats: 49, Male, Overweight, bad knees, lower back pain Using various KT tape now for 4 months Use: KT tape gets me thru my work outs and provides me with a solution that helps reduce damage to this old frame. Swimming, Bike, walking, playing with family and dog. Conclusion: Other Brands of KT don't stick. PERIOD! Using rolls of tape to get benifit but they just don't stick. Solution: RockTape stays on. Actually, it's the best tape I have tried and I have tried more than a few of them. Stays on under cloth, in the water and on the bike. It helps support my workout. Thanks RockTape.. You allow me to get better!
Love this product
The tape did not work for me at all.
