Welcome to our guide on Stomach/Abdominal Separation, a condition that affects many individuals but often goes unnoticed and undiagnosed. This condition has significant implications on overall health, especially for postpartum women. Our goal is to shed light on this condition and offer effective solutions through the Tupler Technique®.

What is Stomach/Abdominal Separation?

It is a condition where the right and left sides of the rectus abdominis muscle move apart at the linea alba, the connective midline of the abdominal wall. Although it commonly occurs in pregnant women due to the stretching of the abdomen to accommodate the growing fetus, it can also affect men, women, and children of all ages.

Causes and Symptoms of Stomach/Abdominal Separation

Causes and symptoms of Stomach/Abdominal Separation vary. Factors that contribute to this condition include pregnancy, rapid changes in body weight, performing exercises incorrectly (particularly those involving the core muscles), and certain types of surgeries. It's important to note that it's not exclusively a postpartum issue.

The most common symptom is a bulge or "pooch" in your stomach, especially when you strain or contract your abdominal muscles. Additional signs may include lower back pain, poor posture, and constipation. In some cases, you might even see a visible gap or depression running down the middle of your abdomen.

Potential Risks Associated with Untreated Abdominal Separation

Left untreated, abdominal separation can lead to long-term health complications. These include chronic lower back pain, postural problems, pelvic floor dysfunction, and hernia. In pregnant women, it can lead to complications in subsequent pregnancies and labor.

Overview of the Tupler Technique® and Its Benefits

The Tupler Technique® is a research and evidence-based exercise program specifically designed to treat Diastasis Recti. It focuses on strengthening the transverse abdominal muscle, the body's internal "girdle," alongside specific movements that protect the connective tissues and facilitate their healing.

Benefits of this Technique® include the reduction or elimination of back pain, improvement of posture, and the potential to achieve a flatter, stronger abdominal wall. Notably, the Tupler Technique® can aid in preventing further abdominal separation during subsequent pregnancies for women.

The Tupler Technique® is a proven approach to treating this condition, and it consists of four essential steps that need to be carried out consistently for optimal results.

The first step is to perform specific exercises that strengthen the transverse abdominal muscle without stressing the connective tissue. These exercises should be done multiple times a day to yield significant results.

The second step is to wear a Diastasis Rehab Splint® that positions both the muscles and the connective tissue correctly, fostering their healing. Wearing the splint is not enough to close the diastasis; you must also do the exercises to strengthen the muscles and connective tissue.

The third step is to continually engage the transverse abdominal muscle in every activity throughout the day. This contracting step is crucial in developing transverse muscle awareness and strengthening the muscles.

The fourth and final step is to learn how to move the body in ways that protect the connective tissue from getting stretched either from activities of daily living or exercise. This body positioning step is essential in avoiding further damage to the connective tissue.

SHOULD BE DONE ?

The Tupler Technique® is an excellent approach to treating abdominal separation, yielding significant results when followed correctly and consistently. If you're interested in addressing your abdominal separation, consider consulting with a certified Tupler Technique® professional. They can guide you in correctly performing the exercises and other components of the Technique®. Remember, with the right approach, healing abdominal separation is entirely within your reach!
