RockTape for Pregnancy

RockTape for Pregnancy

The 9 months of pregnancy come along with all sorts of difficult changes to the body. Not only are there many hormonal and emotional changes, but there are enormous physical changes. Pregnancy is tough. RockTape is tougher. RockTape has created many different taping standards and protocols with the goal of easing the pain and stress on the pregnant body. Swollen feet? RockTape can help. How about a sore and fatigued back from all the extra weight? RockTape can help. Sciatica? Plantar Fasciitis? Rib Pain? RockTape can help. Physical Support Options for Pregnancy: RockTape I was “lucky” to be pregnant through the summer months. I hit the second trimester as the temps were escalating in our lovely beach town and began to feel the stretching and pulling of my belly as those temperatures kept going up, up, and up! I was not interested in one more layer of clothing and needed something while I was upright rather than all the lovely pillows that are available to support your belly as you sleep. Enter RockTape. As a chiropractor, I found out about this from a fellow doctor who posted pics on Facebook showing how it was helping one of his patients a couple years prior. He was actually using it on a bruise on an athlete, a gentleman who did strongman feats. The results I saw prompted me to look into this specific company. I had heard of kinesiotape before, as well as sports taping during a semester of athletic training in high school. This product, in my opinion, goes above and beyond! https://www.instagram.com/p/BJg0NYCh6VL/ First of all, let me explain these...
Dear RockTape, Let’s Talk About Chronic Pain

Dear RockTape, Let’s Talk About Chronic Pain

RockTape’s manifesto urges people to get up and keep moving no matter what. Get moving; go outside, splash around in the mud and run through rings of fire. WIN. While our rallying cries resonate with some, it has become apparent to us that they are NOT TELLING THE WHOLE STORY. We need an adage that resonates with EVERY WARRIOR armored in RockTape. This one’s for our warriors fighting battles no one else can see. For the ones whose triumphs go unnoticed and whose greatest strengths and proudest moments are taken for granted by those around them. For the champions whose marathons include standing for several minutes or an hour at a time. You may not receive medals for your miraculous victories, but these daily battles just make you stronger. Sometimes we forget just why our tape is so special. When we tape people to help alleviate chronic pain – even the slightest bit – THAT is the ultimate victory. It’s time to tell the WHOLE STORY. The reason we love RockTape is because of what it can do for people like Stephanie Lomeli.   Hello RockTape Team, I want to begin by thanking you for making a product that is so versatile in nature. Having watched the Olympics recently, it was certainly empowering to see the athletes wearing it just as I am, though for an entirely different reason. When I was young, 11 years-old to be exact, I too was an athlete. That summer, I sustained a life changing injury to my knee that forever ended my participation in sports. I could no longer run, and for almost an entire year couldn’t walk either. I underwent three knee surgeries...

How did your jet skiing career begin?When/how did you get into jet skiing? So, it all started when I got injured and wasn’t able to ride a motorcycle anymore…. I was looking for something to fill that gap in my life. I thought it was a very similar sport so I started researching. As a freshly injured paraplegic I had to be somewhat safe and consult my doctor. After talking to him and getting his opinion–he strongly advised me not to do it, warning that it might be just too violent for my back. For some strange reason I ignored his recommendation and went ahead and tried riding a PWC, after that it was all downhill from there. I was absolutely hooked and wanted to get a bigger and faster ski.  What do most people not realize about training for competitive jet skiing?  Training and competing for AquaX PWC racing is much like training for motocross. You need your endurance level to be very high; it’s a full body impact sport, so you are using every muscle group in your body–and it gets really brutal with rougher weather conditions. I’d consider it harder than motocross because each wave that comes at you is constantly changing…making it that much more difficult to negotiate each obstacle. Yes, the water is more forgiving than dirt, but at 70 miles per hour, water becomes very unforgiving too. What are your greatest achievements?  To date, my greatest achievement was finishing in 2nd place at the 2016 Russky Grand Prix in Vladivostok Russia. This was a 5-day endurance offshore race on some very interesting water conditions in the North...
Alternative Uses for RockTape: Every Bride Needs to Know This Trick

Alternative Uses for RockTape: Every Bride Needs to Know This Trick

This tape, I don’t even know where to begin! My seamstress Diane introduced me to this tape to help eliminate back fat from my strapless dress along with that annoying bunch at the underarms. It works and it’s amazing!!!   Every bride needs to know this trick. You take the tape and, making sure that the first end doesn’t extend above your dress line, you attach it to your problem area. Then pull the tape downwards and/or out, depending on how you want the skin to smooth. As you pull, press the tape onto your skin and smooth it down. Like a charm! I loved this dress but I was dismayed to see my rear reflection when I first tried it on. Because of that I almost didn’t choose it. I read that the proper seamstress can cut the dress in a way to reduce the appearance of back fat, but this tape did that and allowed the dress to be nice and snug, without any weird alterations. I had the tape on for several hours after each fitting and all day/night for my wedding. I never felt it and it didn’t rip out my hair when I went to take it off. They should honestly market this tape specifically to the wedding industry and offer it in a variety of skin tones. A large part of me feeling stunning in my dress and totally self confident was because of the way that this tape worked. Thank you seems insufficient.   – Stacy A., Michigan...
Dear RockTape, Sweet Manifesto Sleeves. Watch Me PR.

Dear RockTape, Sweet Manifesto Sleeves. Watch Me PR.

“Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for your manifesto knee sleeves. I’ve been through tons of other brands over the years and they only lasted a few months at the most. Just recently I competed in a CrossFit competition and broke 2 PRs. Now I’m not saying it was the knee sleeves but I read some of the prints on them before I do my Olympic lifting work and I’m not sure why but it helps. On that competition I went from hitting 285lb clean in practice and ended up hitting 305lb clean and took 1st in that event. Finished 2nd overall once the day was done and I didn’t take those bad boys off for any event, ha that’s probably why they’re all torn up. I just really appreciate those sleeves for helping me grind through some tough practices.“ – Evan Smith, New Jersey RockTape KneeCaps are on closeout for $30 for the pair! Get yours...

Why did you get into chiropractic? There are few people who significantly influence your life. My Father is the person who has helped guide my actions and decisions. He has been a loyal chiropractic patient for as long as I can remember. Being an avid golfer he would seek chiropractic care to keep him playing and performing well.  Because of my Dad’s commitment to chiropractic care, I grew up learning and watching the benefits of hands-on manual therapy. I wanted to help people move better and improve their quality of life like my Dad’s chiropractor has done for him.  Tell us about your practice. Where, and what do you specialize in? We have office locations in Golden and Lakewood, Colorado.   I specialize in foot and ankle biomechanics and am passionate about the interface between the foot and earth.  It amazes me how our feet and walking/running gait affect the kinetic chain. We have a state of the art Optogait system in our office with which I can see parts of the gait cycle that can not been seen by the human eye.  The information provided by the Optogait helps me make better decisions for my patients so they can return after injury or improve their performance.   What was your first experience with RockTape? I hurt my back several years ago and was treated using RockTape.  I loved the way RockTape helped me recover from my injury and started to use RockTape with my patients.  How do you use RockTape in your practice? I use RockTape on almost every patient. I use RockTape to stimulate my patients neurosensory system, improve their posture, decrease their pain, and get them to PERFORM better. What’s...
