rock tape and rock blades
Soothe pain and improve athletic performance with Rock Tape. When applied to the skin, rock tape can interfere with painful signals which are directed to the brain. Rock tape can create a lifting effect underneath the skin which allows by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly. It can also help bring dormant muscles back to life, and help calm down the more overactive muscles. It is beneficial for athletes and people of all ages.
Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, IASTM, is a manual therapy technique designed to provide direct, mechanical manipulation of irregular tissue. It helps to foster improved movement and the ability to better control the movement. Fascial dysfunction is now widely recognized as a pain generator and cause of many tissue extensibility problems . Through clinical research, instrument-assisted techniques have been demonstrated to have a beneficial effect on the management of pathological adhesions and in speeding up healing rates. They are designed to work along side other treatments including manipulation/mobilization, rehabilitative and corrective exercise, dry-needling, rock taping, and functional movement. Rock blades are another tool to assist our medical professionals in helping our patients decrease pain, move better, and, ultimately, perform better.
