I love the fact that there are soooooo many variations in "patterns". Styles for femailes, males kids, etc.....
I love that it stays on, even through sweaty workouts and showers!
What a wonderful adjunct to my practice!!...I do have some athletes, but, this tape serves non athletes too....perfect for keeping our patients MOVING!!!
I'm an acupuncturist. My patient initially came to me for treatment of sciatic pain. Two treatments within two days reduced the pain by 97%. She then developed a spasm in her peroneous that traveled mid-calf down to the foot. After needling a third time, I taped her leg from lateral knee down to the ankle. The spasm lessened within minutes. She kept the tape on for four days. The spasm and sciatic pain have not returned. Impressive recovery!
The skull print is really cute. I wore iit during Halloween week. The only thing that I don't like too much is that it's not as sticky as the h2o series. Usually non h2o tape lasts me about a day and a half cause after i shoewer it starts unsticking. And this happens with all that aren't h2o.
I Love Rocktape no matter what color it is. It supplies great support and relief for my arthritic thumb, my sore knee and throbbing calf musclesIt's just wonderful stuff. But I especially like the black skull motif and it's kind of Halloweenie.!!
I had to tape my daughter's shoulder before her volleyball game. I pulled out the skull tape and she looked at me like I was crazy. Not 2 minutes later the entire team "needed" to be taped. It was a hit and her very next serve was spot on.
I've used Rocktape to help heal a shoulder AC joint injury in the past. So when the other shoulder had the same symptoms I used Rocktape however this time the taping did not stay in place. In fact it came loose after applying it twice through two workouts. On the 3rd attempt I used a less elaborate taping (4 strips over the AC joint) and it stayed it place for 4 days, through 4 showers and two workouts. That was the experience I got the first time using RT. Not sure why it came undone but it is a great product and the adhesive is so much better than the competition.
I rely on Rock Tape for stability as well as recovery . Never fail !
As with the other styles of Rocktape, this has proven to be an effective solution to treat muscle strains. I run 25+ miles per week. Used it on my ankle, achilles, and calf on separate occasions. It hasn't let me down. Adheres to your skin well, even if you tend to sweat a lot. The flying skull design always gets compliments, especially when people realize it's not "flare". Keep up the great job RT!
I had my knee scooped almost 5 months ago and the moment I recieved my tape I placed around the operated area . I felt a release of pressure in the morning when I awoke and have felt an imediate difference when during my work outs and Muay Thai pad work .
I have been wearing the same tape now for 5 days and it is still going strong. Sooo much beter than the other kt tape.
What's not to love ? Performance with SKULLS...saves my knee, every time !
