Kinesiotaping....We are now Rock Docs!

Last summer, Dr. Zair and Dr. Dias-Zair became certified in Rock Tape applications. This is a special type of kinesiotaping, first used in Japan by acupuncturists and chiropractors. It is now widely used by several types of practitioners but only effectively if they are properly trained. You probably have seen several althletes in the past couple of Olympics wearing the tape!

The docs have been using kinesiotape for over a year now but found Rock Tape has better flexibility and sticks better. Our patients noticed the difference too. It also comes in several colors and fun patterns.

What is ROCKTAPE used for?
Achilles tendonitis
• Plantar fasciitis
• Jumpers knee (PFS)
• ACL/MCL issues
• Rotator cuff
• Groin and hamstring pulls
• Lower back issues
• Shin splints
• Tennis and golf elbow
• Pain associated with pregnancy
• Postural correction

and edema (swelling- post injury or metabolically induced). We've also used it to help stabilize joints and Dr. Dias-Zair experienced a huge benefit last summer during her bout of shoulder bursitis.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It stretches in one direction and not the other to create a biomechanical lifting mechanism to lift the skin away from the soft tissue underneath allowing more blood to move through the area to accelerate recovery from injury. The tape is hypoallergenic, acrylic based and contains no latex!

WHAT IS FASCIAL MOVEMENT TAPING?
This also known as power taping to assist in coordination and movement. When athletes fatigue, they lose form, causing them to slow down. Power taping protocol helps althletes extract every ounce of energy from their bodies to use as efficiently as possible. You do not need to be an athlete to benefit from power taping. The docs have taped patients with gait abnormalities such as cerebral palsy patients.

WE TAPE MOVEMENTS, NOT MUSCLES!
