I just had full knee replacement on Jan. 16, 2018. I had 13 lbs of water wt. on my right leg. 3 days later my right foot developed a blister that burst open and drained for 7 days. My foot was so swollen and it hurt more than where the incision is where they put in my new knee. When I got home from Rehab, I got my Rock Tape Edema strips and covered my entire foot. I also covered with regular Rock tape from my knee (excluding where the incision is) down to where the Rock Edema tape was. With the Edema Rock Strips, in 4 days the swelling and pain in my foot was gone and with the regular Rock tape on my entire leg from the knee down the swelling also has been diminished. I highly recommend both forms of Rock Tape.
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.
Our pre-cut edema strips make for quick and easy taping applications for contusions, swelling and other injuries where inflammation control are crucial.
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.
