Kinesiotape is a revolutionary new type of therapy designed to aid in the healing of musculoskeletal injuries and improve physical performance. At Compass, we prefer to use the Rocktape brand because we believe it is the most effective and longest-lasting product on the market. Rocktape’s application is quite versatile – it can be used to decrease pain, activate or deactivate muscles, improve blood flow and help drain swelling. It’s not a brace or a crutch, rather a proprioceptive (body awareness) aid in promoting proper musculoskeletal function.
Dr. Drew Hunt has completed coursework through Rocktape to become a certified Rock Tape Functional Movement Provider.
Common uses for Rocktape include:
- postural correction
- ankle/knee/shoulder/wrist sprains
- tendonitis (golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis, etc.)
- low back pain and sciatica
- plantar fasciitis
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- rotator cuff syndrome
- bruises and swelling
