Spring Osteo Clinic_dynamic tapeDynamic tape

Dynamic Tape is available in two strengths recognisable by their colours: beige with beige tattoo and beige with black tattoo.  Common to both of these tapes is high stretch, good resistance and strong recoil. It stretches much further and does not have a rigid end point like kinesiology tapes. This design and the unique, visco-elastic properties allow it to work like a bungee cord by acting on the levers of the body aiming to provide a deceleration force, absorb load and reduce the work on injured, overloaded or fatigued tissues.  It is particularly well suited to applications targeting the musculotendinous unit, functional assistance where weakness or nerve injury is present or for long multijoint applications.  The black tattoo offers a slightly higher resistance and recoil to the beige tattoo and is the more commonly used product.  The beige tattoo may be preferable on more sensitive skin due to the slightly lower forces or where a more discreet tapping application is required.

Spring Osteo Clinic rock tapeRocktape

Rocktape improves athletic performance by reducing muscle fatigue and promoting proper form. Unlike conventional tape which constricts blood flow, Rocktape lifts the skin away from the muscles, which increases blood flow. Rocktape also helps promote proper form by helping athletes coordinate their movements, which leads to efficiency. Rocktape stretches just like your skin – wear it anywhere or anytime.
