The first job in our chiropractic office is to make sure the joint is in proper alignment by adjusting the joint. Then Rock Tape can be applied to aid in the healing of the area that is being adjusted and taped. When applied over a stretched muscle, Rock Tape lifts the skin, accelerating blood flow to increase the amount of oxygen available to the muscle. When extra oxygen is available to muscle, fatigue to that group of muscles is reduced. Rock Tape also promotes lymph drainage to remove toxins produced by the body during hard efforts. Lymph drainage helps to decrease swelling and edema in joints. Rock Tape is made with strong adhesive tape so it will last between 3-5 days. It is water resistant, made from 100% cotton, and is latex and zinc free.
