I work with folks over 60 that are not athletes!! This tape works great and stays on and doesn't hurt when they take it off. That means they are happy to be taped if the discomfort comes back, or if there is a new area to be addressed. I've also used it in ways not recommended and have yet to cause a blister or skin irritation. Rock tape rocks!!
RockTapeRx is the world's best kinesiology tape specially designed to be gentler on skin. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain.
This is not meant to replace other RockTape kinesiology tapes. This is simply a gentler addition to our current offerings, ideal for less active patients.
How does it work?
RockTapeRX microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia, which decompresses the area which reduces swelling. RockTape also signals the central nervous system through the skin's nerves, which provides powerful feedback to minimize pain and cue form.
What are the benefits?
- Relieves swelling by creating more space for congested and compressed capillaries, lymph vessels, arteries, and veins.
- Speeds recovery and enabling you to go stronger, longer.
- Increases awareness of your body position to help you maintain proper posture and form.

I am a huge RockTape fan, after trying every other Kinesiology tape brand out there, I am a 100% believer in RockTape. After taping on a new area, I noticed I was getting raw, irritated skin in the same spot each time. I tried RockTape Rx and it was wonderful. It worked just like regular RockTape, nice and sturdy and adhered very well, but at the same time, didn't mess up my skin! You won't be disappointed by this tape, or any of RockTape's tapes!
I have several patients who are elderly and I love the rocktape for everyone, so when I saw this I was ecstatic to to purchase it and its amazing!!!
