Quick Relief For Your Pain in the Neck

 

A testimonial by Monica Richards, AKA ecobabe:

Tech Neck is a royal PAIN in the neck! 

In this century, it’s not going away any time soon. So, if you’re a girl-on-the-go like me, this means you’re constantly looking down at your computer and your phone. And you need a solution… FAST. Why so fast? Because not only does tech neck give you wrinkles and fine lines (OOOH our necks instantly reveal our age), but it also causes poor posture and neurological and muscular disorders! This is serious stuff here…  Now, because you’re always on the go, you probably never really think about the damage you’re causing to your spine all throughout the day… So, I’ve come up with the perfect solution, so you don’t have to.  And it works! You’ll feel the difference right away. I couldn’t believe it. And now I’m hooked. It’s also a triple threat: super affordable, long-lasting and very easy. And it’s all wrapped up into 1 little role of RockTape.  So press play, start stashing this tape in your purse and on your desk, and be on your way to better spine and neck health. And don’t be afraid to spread the word. – X

How RockTape Keeps This Drum & Bugle Band Marching Stronger Longer

How RockTape Keeps This Drum & Bugle Band Marching Stronger Longer

Athletes spend hours on the practice field day in, day out, to master their sport so that they can perform at the top level. The work musicians put in is much less glamorized and is often forgotten. When we began working with the Pacific Crest Drum and Bugle Corps we had to find out more about what goes into putting on a great show. This talented group of youngsters compete at an elite level, which means they’re spending hours a day training in tough conditions so that they are at the top of their game when competition time arrives. Whilst hard work and determination are key to their success, a grueling schedule can often lead to repetitive stress injuries.

We caught up with team physician Cami McCallum, RN, ATC to learn more about the work outside of the spotlight and how she uses RockTape to keep her musicians going stronger, longer. Here’s what she said: read more…

Meet Team RockTape: The Strongest Woman on Oxygen Therapy, Karen Skalvoll

Meet Team RockTape: The Strongest Woman on Oxygen Therapy, Karen Skalvoll

What is your favorite way to be active (what types of sports have you participated in)? When/how did you get into lifting? When did you start competing?

As a child I was into swimming, equestrian dressage/riding and judo. Later in life I started running, light lifting and climbing. After I became ill in 2009 I slowly but surely got back into sports – first powerlifting, then I added cycling and later OCR and strongman. As an adult, I compete in powerlifting, strongman and running.

You are an adaptive athlete. When did you realize this challenge (before or after your career in lifting)? What do most people not realize about training with your disability? 

I have always had a difficult time getting the same results as everyone else. Training as a swimmer has always been the hardest for me; breathing is hard enough for a swimmer, but it became more difficult as I would fight infection after infection. While training for the NY Marathon in 2009, my lungs failed me and as a result I spent over two years fighting for my life. I was more in hospitals than at home during those years. I spent over two months in rehabilitation to regain enough strength to return to my daily life.
