I love Rocktape. My chiropractor started using it on my calf to speed healing after a grade 2 strain. I was back on the golf course 2 weeks later (twice as fast as the last time I tore the other calf). I've also been using it for tennis elbow (caused by golf). I haven't been pain-free for years playing golf and when I wear Rocktape I don't even feel a twinge. It's a total miracle! My brother has suffered from pain in his wrist for years and I looked up a Rocktape You Tube video to get instructions on taping him up before we played golf. He felt definite relief during that first round of golf. Rocktape is life-changing - that is not hyperbole, it's coming from someone who hates to be on the sidelines due to injury.

I think I will use as much of this tape as the beige. People love temporary tattoos and it makes having the tape on a fun experience. One if my clients needed her arm and hand taped and was thinking I would have beige just like the chiropractor. As soon as she saw the tattoo style she couldn't wait to see it on her arm. This tells me that she will be nuch more likely to keep it on longer. I belueve that Rocktape tape is the best tape out there! So tattoo patterned Rocktape is even better!
Works perfectly, I am wild land firefighter severely pulled my groin during workout only 12 weeks before the season starts. I am now about 70% way quicker than expected.
By far, the tribal tattoo design Rocktape is the most requested in the office when it comes time for taping. People purchase it and bring it in to make sure that is the tape they will get
I've used almost all of the brands of tape out there, and always prefer Rock Tape. It sticks, looks great, and stays on for days. Tribal is so popular with my patients I always run out of it first!
Tattoo is the most popular pattern Rock Tape with our clients young and old. At South Kona Physical Therapy on Hawaii Island we have a hard time keeping our shelves stocked with this favored design.
The tribal print makes my injury look like cool tatoo!
Put Edgy into Rehab. Hardcore Stick, Stay & Support. Plus Way Cool to Wear!
The tattoo print RockTape is practical and fun! I had no problem keeping it on for 3 days. It provided needed support, and looked good doing it!
Great hold even against, sweat, water, and other elements!
Love the tattoo. Gets noticed and can share about the benefits of Rock Tape
I am recovering from reconstructive knee surgery and having difficulty with my kneecap staying on track. They have been taping my knee in physical therapy. As soon as the tape is applied I feel the difference. I can walk, squat, and flex my knee with a much smoother motion and minimal pain. It also helps to increase blood flow. I am very grateful to have this technology available in a sport tape. The only thing I don't like is taking the tape off. The adhesion is great and will last several days, through showering and swimming. But I have to use alcohol on a cotton swab to remove it without pain. This may not be an issue after my incisions are no longer so sensitive. Overall, I love Rock Tape and am very grateful that this is available to the public.
We have been so impressed with Rock Tape. We have tried K T Tape and it lasted ok if you weren't doing activities, but started peeling soon after activity started. Rock Tape holds up for days after activity and shower and does its job.
Simply love it. It does everything it says it does. It does look as if I have tatoos at distance. People inquire about it frequently. I tell them all about it and refer them to the local physical therapy group for their first taping. Thank you for this wonderful product.
I LOVE Rock Tape, swear by it for CrossFit intensity and has been instrumental in recovering from a tear in my forearm. This Tattoo design is pretty cool, but I feel a little silly wearing it more than other tape for some reason...like I'm trying to look like I have a sleeve tat! haha. But, that being said, I have had tons of comments in the last two days of wearing it, and that allows me to tell people about the amazing product!
I have been using Rocktape for a few years now ever since I discovered it when I transitioned to bare-soled running and my lower leg muscles were adapting. I swear by it. Since then, RT has helped my calves, Achilles, IT band, lower back and hip issues. Seems I am always tweaking something either running or in the yard! I have also learned that the tape sticks best and lasts longest when the skin is completely dry and free of any lotions. Swabbing with alcohol helps. This tattoo design is definitely my new fave (after cow and blue argyle) because it goes with nearly everything in my closet, and I've gotten the most rave comments about it.
Amazing results, comfortable, sticks better than any of the other tape out there on the market. Cool design!
I'm impressed. I usually use knee wraps or braces. The tape let me have more movement and I felt stronger. It felt good doing my obstacle course training and weight lifting!
This tape is great! Fantastic results and patients really love the wild design!
Our population in Hawaii loves the tattoo print and our PT's love it because it seems to stick even better than most other already superior Rocktape. Hope it comes in the larger rolls soon. For large rolls our favorite is still the blue argyle.
I had chronic rib pain for 8 months and nothing was working, I see a chiropractor regularly and I went to a different chiropractor because I heard about the tape and wanted to try it. My ribs go out of place easily and I wear the tape on my chest 24/7 and am almost 100% pain free in my ribs when I wear it. Highly recommend for any chronic musculoskeletal issues!!!
We just started using Rock Tape at BioMechanix Strength & Conditioning Clinic by the referral of a neighborhood Chiropractor. Compared to both Kinesio-Tex and KT Tape which are the brands we were using, Rock Tape outperforms both of them in every respect. We were especially impressed on how Rock Tape didn't fray or start to peel up at all, especially with edema taping. In fact we had patients that had worked out and showered several times wearing the tape without any compromises to it. Rock Tape is definitely the best Kinesiology tape we have ever used and we highly recommend it to any health care professional! We will be using Rock Tape from here on out and everybody loves the cool prints that are available. We like the tattoo design in particular. One last thing, if you do have a problem with the tape not sticking then you are most likely applying it wrong, Have a certified taping professional show you how.
Both my wife and I are mid-50's triathletes/marathoners/serious cyclists. She is a Physical Therapist with access to all the various types of kinesiotape. Through trial and error with various brands we have found through our personal experience with plantar, sore lower backs, stiff upper traps etc that Rock is by far the preferred brand. It has great adhesion and sticks forever even with hours spent in the pool. And the right strecth properties to do the job. She works in a hospital out patient setting and is trying to get them to adopt Rock as their provider of kinesiotape. Not to mention the wide selection of cool designs (flying skull is my fav, she likes the tattoo design).
I had high expectations for Rocktape. I really hoped it would help heal my planter faciaties. So far I have taped my foot according to the directions , had my wife an RN , tape it. Yet it will last no longer than a day before it starts to peel off. Not sure if it worth the cost.
I've started using Rock Tape at the suggestion of my PT to support my patella, prior to surgery. It has helped ease the irritation and swelling I get from exercising. I also get consistent comments re: my Tat, so it makes it a fun conversation piece as well.
