Top 4 Reasons RockTape Rises Above the Rest.
Kinesiology tape has been getting a lot of press over the last 5 years and with the 2016 Crossfit Games and Olympics coming up we will see more and more of it on athletes and in the news. We use it in our office on a daily basis and Dr. Tyler is certified by RockTape in Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) Level 1 and 2 and by FAKTR in Functional Taping for Musculoskeletal Injuries. There are several brands of tape available on the market, but we believe in providing our patients with nothing but the best. RockTape achieves that goal and here’s a list of reasons how it does that.
Reason No. 1
Unlike other kinesiology tapes made for rehabilitation, RockTape was created in the heat of competition. We knew first hand that medical tape would fail under race conditions, so we developed a lab in the Santa Cruz mountains where we could test our product until it met our standards.
RockTape may be higher cost, but when it’s all on the line, it’s nice to know you’ve got the best. RockTape is kinesiology tape evolved and enhanced, we did this to meet the demanded of athletes but the net effect is simply the best kinesiology tape around. So whether RockTape is being used on international athletes, kids or arthritic octogenarians they all notice and benefit from the improvements we have made.
Reason No. 2
Stretching is good. Our research shows that by making our tape with 180% elasticity, we allow the athlete fuller and better range of motion. Our competitors only offer a 130-150% stretch.
Can you feel the difference? To us, it’s like night and day. When we wear our competitors tape we feel like we’ve been bound – we don’t believe that’s what anyone wants to feel when you’re walking much less running.
Reason No. 3
There are always options in life and compromises can be made. When we designed our tape, we wanted superior snap-back which is the ability of the tape to stretch without too much resistance, yet provide assistance to muscles when they return to neutral.
To get the right stretch and recovery dynamics and the proper moisture defence we were faced with using a special nylon called “6/12” – which is more expensive. Could we have used a cheaper nylon? Sure, but life is short and making the best possible product for you is what we’re all about. We chose not to compromise our standards because neither do you.
Reason No. 4
One size does not fit all. Imagine if we all tried to wear the same shirt. Some of our competitors seem to think we’re all the same size so they only make one width of tape and conveniently pre-cut their tape to inconvenient lengths expecting us to adjust to their marketing.
We think there’s a big difference between a 7ft tall rugby player and a 55kg ballet dancer. A difference in size perhaps, but identical in attitude and spirit. We think it’s our job to fit you in size and spirit rather than the other way.
