Rocktape is a type of kinesiology tape. The biggest attribute to the miracle of kinesiology tape is that it changes neurosensory input to the central nervous system at an area of pain and discomfort ...changing sensory output and decreasing or taking away your perception of pain.
Taping doesn't cure your dysfunction in the long term. It is a way to tone down pain and inflammation while applied to the skin. While the tape is on, mobility exercises are encouraged. This helps to retrain the mind that the body is capable of moving with-out pain.
