kinesio taping in North Richland Hills

benefits of kinesio taping

To aid in athletic performance (and the recovery from it) our North Richland Hills chiropractor also utilizes kinesiological taping techniques with RockTape. Unlike traditional taping systems and techniques, kinesiological taping is the taping of movement. Traditional taping techniques were applied to stabilize and immobilize joints (i.e. the white tape is seen on the ankles of every football player) whereas RockTape is used to support specific movements of the body.

Purpose of Kinesio Taping in North Richland Hills TX

RockTape improves athletic performance and recovery by promoting blood flow to the muscles, promoting lymphatic drainage, assisting in the removal of lactic acid & reducing muscle vibrations. Through this mechanism, RockTape is able to promote circulation and endurance while enhancing recovery. Basically, RockTape allows your muscles to move better and smoother during a competition and, when that competition is completed, it decreases the recovery time by allowing the muscles to recycle the waste products generated (i.e. lactic acid) from the competition.
