Relieve Low Back Pain with the Tupler Technique® Exercises
The goal of the Tupler Technique® is to heal the weakened connective tissue that joins your outermost abdominal muscles. Some causes of a diastasis are from the process of aging, pregnancy and improper exercise which makes a diastasis worse and affect your back, pelvic floor, posture and ability to do the exercises you want to do.
One of the functions of the recti muscle is to support the back. When the muscles separate it weakens the support for the back and causes back problems. When you engage the transverse is shortens the recti (outermost muscle) from the middle and makes the diastasis smaller. Also when you engage the transverse muscle you are also working the lumbar multifidus muscle. Working this muscle also helps with low back pain.
By just wearing the Diastasis Rehab Splint® will NOT close your diastasis and will only give you temporary results which is why you need to do all 4 steps of the program.
