Worcester Warriors and RockTape

Worcester Warriors and RockTape

Worcester Warriors, the Aviva Premiership rugby union side, are proud to announce ‘RockTape’ as their official Kinesiology tape supplier for the 2017-18 season. Premiership rugby puts a huge number of physical demands and stresses on the bodies of our players. From Stability to optimising biomechanics, strapping helps enhance performance. Historically, strapping has been rigid, restrictive and loosened off quickly with poor durability. The evolution of K tape, has allowed the medical team at Worcester Warriors to optimise player performance both on and off the pitch. RockTape offers robustness, durability and sustained dynamic capabilities through extreme conditions. Its ability to cope with multiple collisions, rain, mud and sweat sets it apart from the rest. The tape is used in a number of ways to offload injured tissues, support weakened structures, aid with swelling control and keep protective padding in place. Having used other brands it has also become a favourite with the players too. Some (to only name a few) of the reasons the guys here at Warriors would advocate the tape: “It’s adhesive is second to none and lasts longer than any other tape I’ve used before.” “As a player you need confidence that your strapping is going to do the job for 80 minutes, something RockTape has guaranteed me this season.” “Rock Tape allows me full movement whilst offering support over my knee ligament, support in a way I don’t think any other tape would offer.” There is a strong history between the medical staff at the club and supplier with the two having worked together for many years.

Rocking Rugby

As the official tape of Saracens RFC, Worcester Warriors, Gloucester RFC and Exeter Chiefs (and the unofficial tape of choice for many more of the Premiership’s sides), Rocktape is no stranger to topflight rugby. In our latest video, Rocktape is shown being applied to, and then seriously tested by, Worcester Warriors’ and England Saxons’ up-and-coming rugby superstar, Matt Kvesic.  Currently training with the full England squad, Worcester Warriors’ youngest ever Premiership player and ex-England U18 Captain, Matt was recently picked by the pundits of BBC Wales’ Scrum V programme as the player most likely to get the traditional young bolter’s place on this summer’s Lions tour to Australia – praise indeed for an English player.  You’ll understand why when you see the impact he’s capable of making at the end of the video (click below). The video shows Matt having Rocktape applied to improved knee stability through VMO and Patella tendon offload and to aid shoulder stability through Deltoid activation and AC Joint offload. Our thanks go to Matt and Mike Lancaster for their sterling work and we wish them the best for the rest of the season http://www.rocktape.co.uk/worcesterwarriors.html With Rocktape being so popular among Premiership players, our Medical Director (and elite physiotherapist), Paul Coker, explains some of the applications you’ll see around the grounds: Gloucester’s Tom Savage (left) and Worcester’s Marcel Garvey (right) both sport cleared our anterior (front) knee wrap taping – an application proving very popular in pro rugby.  It’s a great way to reduce pain and irritation around the knee cap.  Tom also has a taping on his right groin.
