A popular new trend in treating soft tissue pain and discomfort. This type of technique uses a special type of tape to stabilize an area or to help correct poor posture. It has become very popular with athletes to help prevent injury during the sporting event. At our office we have found it most helpful in preventing specific actions which trigger pain in an individual which gives the area time to heal. At our office we use primarily a product called "Rock Tape" and the adhesive on the tape that sticks to the skin is the same adhesive used in band-aids (just stronger,) it is also latex and zinc free.
