RockTape - RockFloss Tutorial - Shoulder and Upper Arm
In this video we detail the steps to applying RockFloss to the shoulder and upper arm. The goal will be to improve flexibility, help with pain management and improve range of motion.
Start at the upper arm, below the shoulder. 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 as far up the shoulder as possible.
For lower impact relief, alternate raising your arm overhead and lowering it down for 45 seconds to a minute. Alternatively, for higher impact, opt for 45 seconds to one minute of push-ups. Unwrap RockFloss and supplement with your favorite RockTape kinesiology taping application for best results.
