Compression TherapyThe Care You Deserve
Compression therapy is an FDA approved procedure that is noninvasive and is very effective for many medical conditions such as lymphedema, cardio vascular insufficiency, acute musculoskeletal injuries with swelling and/or bruising, and any conditions that require lymph assist. All human bodies are managed by smooth circulation of blood and lymph. Pneumatic compression systems help that patient recover by promoting blood and lymphatic circulation and increased metabolism.

Rock TapingWhat is Rocktape?
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. RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.
What is Rock tape used for?
- Achilles tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Jumpers knee (PFS)
- ACL/MCL issues
- Rotator cuff
- Groin and hamstring pulls
- Lower back issues
- Shin splints
- Edema Control
- Sports Performance
- Tennis and golf elbow
- Pain associated with pregnancy
- Postural correction Sensorimotor (proprioceptive)
Sensorimotor (proprioceptive) system – It is a system of receptors (in this case cutaneous/skin receptors) that communicate with the brain about the body’s position. Essentially the tactile nature of the tape makes your body hyper aware of its own location and movements.
Inflammation control – RockTape lifts skin away from the underlying fascia, which holds blood and lymph vessels and nerves. This extra space relieves fluid congestion, reduces inflammation and pain, and allows for increased blood flow and therefore accelerated healing.
Kinetic chain – RockTaping was developed based on the concept of muscles acting as parts in a chain. Essentially what this means is you are taping the movement pattern, not an isolated body part. One beneficial aspect of this method of taping is the “snap back” phenomenon. This means the elastic recoil of the RockTape assists in bringing muscles back to their original position efficiently when a movement is completing.
