I'm 64 and doing crossfit 4 times a week I was plagued with a sore shoulder until I taped it with rock tape. It's pretty amazing stuff it took my pain from 8 down to a 2.

My PT started using RockTape as a treatment option. This tape has made a significant difference in my level of health and ability to walk and cycle. No words to suffice for this great product and tool.
I first used the tape at a charity event and have been stuck ever since. Simply put when I use it my knees don't hurt. If I don't use it or remove it during a ride the knees start to hurt! I also use the Rock Sauce which seems to keep my knees warm and loose. Did I mention that I'm a 68 year old man with very bad knees!! Love the products!!
Had a couple of stingers that just wouldn't go away. Did a complete wirkout with the tape with very little pain. Love this tape.
Very satisfied with this product because it stays on the skin for a while compared to other products .
I used this for plantar fasciitis and it negated nearly all my pain.
I tape stubborn movements / patterns in my practice, such as feet and hips, and the tape with logo has a much better "tension" than without logo, in my opinion. I love RockTape for its adhesive and stretch.
Just received the Rock Tape and have used it on a few clients. Sturdier than Kinesiotape and adheres better. Am waiting to see its longevity and effect on clients skin as well as clinical effectiveness Also appreciate the taping ideas insert and love the colors. So far ,so good and thank you for the sample .
I've used RT knee caps and now am using RT kines-tape. Love this stuff. When used properly RT stabilizes and pushes me through every workout just as strong as the one before it!
I've used a variety of brands of kinesiology tape and find RockTape to last the longest. Other brands begin to peel off after only one day.
Rocktape helped me a lot with my shin splints. I can run again and do double unders, both hurt a lot before using the tape. It also works for taping fingers/hands for lifts or pull-ups. The adhesive is great, it stays on for around 4 days until it comes of a little at the ends (with 1-2 workouts and showers a day). No other kinesio tape was that sticky and no other helped that much with my shins. Thanks Rocktape!
I was having knee problems so I was recommended to use Rock Tape. I was a bit skeptical at first and thought it was gimmicky but it really helped me while I was training for my long runs. It really helped eased the pain. Only thing I don't like is that the ends would roll up sometimes. Highly recommended!!!
I have very active kids that do multiple sports. As a coach of those sports I appreciate a solution to an injury besides an over the counter or a prescription drug. Especially since the result is just about instant and you don't need to wait 3-4 days for something else to start working. Thank you RockTape
I put on AT and tennis elbow, which caused major sciatica pain, I took off after a day, but it really healed me. Incredible!
You can't miss seeing someone taped with the Red Logo of Rocktape. The tape sticks extremely well like all their products. Love it.
Being a Powerlifter, I often have to train around, or through an injury. As I'm no longer a young man, I take preventative measures when I squat over 500lbs. With Rocktape, I'm learning new ways to stop that injury before it happens!
Always see Crossfit people with this tape on them so I decided to give it a try, I cannot believe the difference it makes; I use the tape on old injuries and it's helped my performance. Definitely recommend RockTape!
Great product, kinesiotape works wonders if applied correctly. The rocktape sticks and stays on well!
unparalleled kinesiotape in all aspects......the sample however seems a bit more robust and tacky than the actual product which is noticeable thinner tape. I wish lesser quantities where available for customization. tape is number one in our office with over a dozen other brands sample in over 25 years of useage
Holds very well and I forget I even have it on at times. I use this with the Rock Sauce and absolutely love it!
Great product! As a sports chiropractor, this product is extremely effective and durable for the athletes who need to either enhance their performance or help recuperate from a sports injury.
Hands down, best adhesion, last a couple days longer than other tapes I've used. I work lifting stuff all day , and I go to the gym right after, rocktape stands tuff. Love it. Will be buying more.
Only one word needed for this product. Amazing, by far this is the best brand out there!
I love working rodeos. The cowboys usually sweat other tapes off... But not Rock Tape... It holds stronger Longer!!!!
I have used this tape on my patients/athletes as well as myself and it stays on in the most harsh conditions. It stays on through workouts, sweat and showers.
I have used a variety of kinesiology tape brands and have found Rock Tape to be a superior product. The adhesive quality and staying power are the best I have experienced.
I find this tape superior to all other sports tape I have used. It holds better, keeps it's stretch longer and lasts longer!
Tried other brands of kinesiotape and had horrible results with them staying on. I've used Rock Tape for two triathlons and multiple runs and have had excellent results. Tape stays on.....even when I had lotion on my legs. Finally a product that works as advertised!!! I've been highly recommending Rock Tape to my tri and running friends. Oh, and thanks to the wonderful customer service person who sent me a sample to try before I placed my order.
I applied the rock tape on my Achilles tendon and on the medial knee area. I used the instructions on-line. Everything was perfect! Easy to apply and the support was excellent! I have never had other brands of kinesiology tape adhere as well as Rock Tape.
I have been using this particular product now for several months. I love the way this tape sticks compared to some of the other brands. Those on whom the tape is applied also seem to like the color and the fact that it stays on longer than most other brands. They also feel support and stability when this tape is applied.
This is the BEST tape. I use the tape for my knee along with my fellow Martial Arts teammates that use the tape for knees or ankles, we find ROCKTAPE superior to others. We do a lot of movements and ROCKTAPE sticks and is comfortable. The video's are helpful and the selection of colors is wonderful. Team KMA loves ROCKTAPE!!!
I pretty much use whatever is on sale and find that the color makes no difference, they are all great. But when a patient of mine noticed I had some red rock tape her eyes lit up and asked if I could use that on her ankle and foot since it matched her nail polish. Maybe I need to figure out what the nail salons are using and have different color rock tape to match all the colors.
Over the years, I have used many kinesiology tapes and I love the Rock Tape. This tape sticks as well or better than any tape I have used.
In June of 2012 I was hit by some farm equipment during a team time trial. I suffered a serious head injury, landing me in intensive care on a ventilator. I have made an amazing recovery, and thought everything was going great through off season training, after 4 months completely off the bike. Then it came time to start adding intensity, and something just wasn't working. Every time I'd go significantly above threshold, my legs would just shut down, like someone turning off a light switch. Week after week, month after month I battled in training and races, getting dropped in sprints, dropped on climbs, and getting more and more frustrated and depressed with my riding. My legs were also continually in knots, no matter how much foam rolling I did, and my right SI joint was killing me. In desperation I went to Dr. Lynch at Rose Garden Health. In addition to ART therapy, she applied RockTape to my legs and low back, and what an improvement! I could actually get my quads to fire and sustain more power! I still have a ways to go to now get the top end training that I've been missing all season, but at least I have access to it now. It seems RockTape even cures head injuries! Thanks RockTape!
For a while, I was having pain coming from my wrist from a surgery I had a few years ago. Doing olympic lifts and other lifting exercises was hard and my progress was hindered by it. I used the carpal tunnel taping technique along with another adaption and was amazed by the support and mobility I had. I was able to push harder, lift faster, and come out of a session feeling confident. Now I don't go to the weight room without it.
Great tool for serious athletes.
sticks very well, great color for motivation on back day.
By far the best tape I have used. Whether for preventive, healing, recovery purposes, Rock Tape has proven to work no matter what the conditions - hot, cold, sweating, rain, etc. The compression, elasticity, and adhesive qualities are amazing and surpass all others I have tried.
RockTape ROCKS! I could go for a "quieter" color but it was on sale. No matter the color, this stuff ROCKS! I am a firm believer in it. Has kept me out of surgery for a few years now and I hate when I run out.
