RockTape! What The Heck Is It?


Where was this RockTape years ago when I needed it?! This is THE best kinesiology tape on the planet. I was a soccer player turned all around athlete and have always dealt with problems ranging from minor muscle strains to ACL reconstruction. I can recall many moments when RockTape would have helped me recover so much faster if it had been around then.

In 2012 I became a certified RockTape Doc and have since gone on to travel the country teaching other professionals how to use this tape with their clients.  Here at Oakdale Physical Therapy and Fitness we are the area’s leading experts on RockTape!

So, what is this RockTape you keep hearing about? 

RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape.  First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.

While the use of kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams, David Beckham, Kerri Walsh, and Olympic athletes of all disciplines, the reality is that RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.

What is RockTape used for? 

Almost everything!  Have pain in your feet or hands such as tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, or a sprained ankle?  Need relief from back, neck, or shoulder pain?  How about pesky knee pain or stiffness?  Then RockTape is for you!
