Chances are, if you’re reading this blog, you either already have an idea of what a diastasis recti is, or you have sneaking suspicion that it’s something that’s affecting you.
First want to assure you of the most important point of departure: it doesn’t matter who you are, or when or how you developed a diastasis. You can do something about it without surgery right now. Gave birth to your last kid thirty-five years ago? Not a problem. Been sporting a pregnant look for the last couple of decades? It’s not too late! Or maybe you’re a woman who never even thought about having a kid, but you have a diastasis for a myriad of other reasons. The point is, almost anyone can get a diastasis and fix it.
You need to take the stretch off of the connective tissue. I call this “approximating” the correct position that both the recti muscles and connective tissue are supposed to be in—the muscles right next to each other and the connective tissue in a narrow position.
It is never too late to fix diastasis recti no matter how or when you got it!
Pregnancy is not the only cause of diastasis. Abdominal surgery, improper abdominal exercises and car accidents can also cause a diastasis.
Fixing a diastasis is all about healing the weak and stretched out connective tissue between the separated muscled. The Tupler Technique® Program does this through the Tupler Technique® exercises. Statistics show it can make a diastasis 55% smaller in six weeks.
