This week, we tapped Shante Cofield to give us one of her favorite tricks with RockFloss. Check out an entirely new way to reduce muscle and joint pain and improve range of motion – with a convenient, portable floss band!
Here we’ll detail the steps to applying RockFloss to the calf. The goal will be to improve flexibility, help with pain management and improve range of motion.
Start below the calf. Be sure you’re always wrapping toward the heart. Begin wrapping with 50% overlap of the previous loop and continue to add tension (as desired), but do not exceed 50% stretch (to avoid numbness or discoloration of the tissue).
Finish by tucking in the end. For lower impact relief, alternate flexing and pointing the toes for 45 seconds to one minute. Alternatively, for higher impact, opt for 45 seconds to one minute of calf raises.
Unwrap RockFloss and supplement with your favorite RockTape kinesiology taping application.
RockFloss is a new, reusable mobility tool that can help you move better and with less pain.
RockFloss is a simple, latex, elastic band that fits easily in your gym bag or backpack. It’s easy, convenient and reusable, and available in 2″ or 4″ widths.
RockFloss uses the science of compression and fascial shearing to help ‘unstick’ muscles and joints so they move better and with less pain.
When should you use RockFloss?
RockFloss can be used before or after training, or as part of a rehabilitation program. If you are currently being seen by a medical professional, you should talk to your medical professional about using RockFloss.
How should I use RockFloss?
You can use RockFloss on almost any part of the body; the only limitation is the size of the body part you intend to treat. Shoulders, knees, wrists, elbows, hips and ankles are all great target areas. You should never use RockFloss on your head or neck.
