I ripped both tendons in my elbow, and one in my thumb and missed 3 months of work. After months at rehab I went back to work with just an elbow support and encountered lots of pain. My physical therapist kept telling me to get some kinesiology tape and I bought and tried 4 brands and RockTape felt like it worked the best. It was able to keep the tape stuck on my palms without falling off unlike other brands that would start to peel off after a couple hours (and if it did, it happened days later then other brands). I work an assembly job so I'm always using my hands and Rocktape allows me to get through my day with very little or no pain. The styles and colors are wonderful, and RockTape seems to be one of the only brands that offers uncut tape without having to buy in bulk. My only compliant is the cost.
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.
