Rocktape & Strapping Applications
Strapping is a treatment technique that gives support to injured joints and muscles, therefore allowing a quicker recovery and return to normal activities or sport.
The main difference between Rocktape and rigid tape is the amount of stretch the tape has. Rocktape is a heat activated tape that stretches up to 180% and allows full normal movement at the joint. Rigid tape is much firmer and allows only a small amount of stretch, therefore is better in the immediate treatment of an injury as it restricts movement and provides support to prevent more damage from occurring.
