What's the Difference between a "Back" Brace and "Front" Brace?
A Front Brace repositions the separated muscles and connective tissue between the muscles. Separated muscles are called diastasis recti. When the muscles are separated they are not doing their job of supporting your back and organs. It is now the weak connective supporting your back and organs. Needless to say it is NOT doing a good job. That is why a bulging belly, outie belly button, back pain and bloating after eating are side effects of separated muscles. One of the 4 steps of the research and evidenced based Tupler Technique® is wearing a Diastasis Rehab Splint® which is a front brace. Putting the muscles closer together puts them in the right position to do the seated exercises correctly. Putting the connective tissue in a narrow position puts it in the best position to heal.
