FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT TAPING
RockTape and FMT can be applied to almost any patient at any time for a variety of reasons. It has been shown to positively affect the recovery and function of everyone from elite athletes, to pregnant mothers, the elderly, and everyone in between.
In the acute stage of an injury our focus is to reduce pain and control edema (swelling). Over the course of several days as fluid dynamics are regulated, taping continues to offer pain relief as well as promote normal range of motion and quality of movement. As patients transition into the subacute phase of care, where we begin to incorporate more corrective exercises, the FMT framework begins to focus more on the proprioception and movement benefits. This phase will carry forward into prevention, performance improvement and recovery taping.
