RockTape Canine & Equine are kinesiology tapes designed for the unique needs of dogs & horses. It works by creating a lifting effect on the skin resulting in decompression of the subcutaneous layers beneath the tape.
Possible outcomes of decompression/lifting effect:
◦Mechanical effect- allows for better glide between tissue layers
◦Fluid effect- allows for better flow of lymphatic and superficial blood flow
◦Neurological effect- decreases firing of pain receptors and provides alternate sensory input
◦Also improves awareness of body position
