HAVE A HOODIE……. BELLY BUTTON?

Did your belly button change after your pregnancy? This is a sign of a diastasis recti. Sometimes it is even an umbilical hernia. When the connective tissue stretches sideways, your belly button loses its support.

Your belly button will change when you strengthen your connective tissue and close your diastasis. It will go from an outie to an innie.

Closing a diastasis is all about healing your stretched out connective tissue.

The Tupler Technique® does this 3 ways:

1. Taking the stretch off the “stretched out” connective tissue by continuously positioning it in a narrow position with the Diastasis Rehab Splint®. The splint also puts the separated muscle closer together making them move in the right direction when doing the seated exercises.


2. Protecting the connective tissue from getting stretched. That means being able to hold in your transverse abdominal muscle with activities of daily living and when you exercise. Also, exercises or sports where you flare your ribs or do a forward crossover movements also stretch your connective tissue.


3. Strengthening your transverse muscle with the seated exercises. It is very important to have both transverse strength AND awareness. Strengthening this muscle is important as it puts it then puts tension on the connective tissue. To strengthen the muscles and connective tissue it is important for them both to move “backwards”.


So if you hate your hoodie……time to get started closing your diastasis recti!
