This revolutionary DVD will teach children the research-based Tupler Technique® Program- the only program that focuses on belly bonding (closing separated muscles). Once children learn how to strengthen the abdominal muscles correctly, they will then learn how to use these muscles during activities of daily living and while exercising or doing sporting activities. Children can start this program as early as 5 years old. The Belly Button Boogie Guidebook is a summary of all the exercises in this DVD. It is not a substitute for the DVD.
Purpose of Diastasis Rehab Short Torso Splint®
There are now two different model splints. The original and the new one for children and people with a short torso. The original model is 8 inches tall and has 3 arms. The short torso splint is 6 inches tall and has 2 arms.
For the Children's Package Two with the regular splint click here.
The purpose is to “position” both the connective tissue and the muscles. It takes the stretch off the connective tissue putting it in a better position to heal. By bringing the muscles closer together you are able to feel your muscles working better thus making the exercises more effective as they will move in a backward position instead of sideways. Our short torso splint will not weaken your abdominal muscles. The purpose of other abdominal binders is "compression" or bringing your abdominals back towards your spine. That is the job of you innermost transverse abdominal muscle. Once you strengthen your transverse muscle with the
Tupler Technique® exercises your transverse muscle can be your compression binder!
Wearing a Diastasis Rehab Short Torso Splint® is just ONE of the 4 steps of the Tupler Technique® Program. You must do the other 3 steps taught in the Diastasis Rehab DVD to close your diastasis. The guidebook then supports you in doing the program on a daily basis. If you are just wearing the short torso splint and not doing the exercises you will not close your diastasis. You need to wear the short torso splint until the connective tissue is shallow.
Please wear the short torso splint all the time. Even when you sleep. Take it off to bathe for 15 minutes. If you broke your leg you would have to wear the cast all the time to continuously keep the two separated ends of the bone together so they heal. It is the same with connective tissue. You must continuously keep it in the same narrow position so it heals. You will know it has healed when it is shallow and you can't feel the muscles grabbing your fingers when you check it.

Instructions for converting the original splint to the short torso splint
Wear the short torso splint all the time except while bathing. Can be worn over a fitted undergarment or directly on skin The way you move your body will affect how the short torso splint stays in place. When getting up and down from a seated to standing position or when bending over, always move with a flat back. Arching or rounding your back will make it move out of place.
Contraindications For Wearing a Short Torso Splint
If you have a medical condition and are under doctor’s care please speak to your doctor about wearing a short torso splint and doing our program. Many physicians do not know about our research and evidence based program. So if you email us, we are glad to speak with your doctor about our program to see if it is appropriate for you. There are many ways to “modify” our program for many medical conditions.
With some medical conditions it is better to hold a short torso splint (scarf or arms of sweater) when doing the seated and back lying exercises instead of wearing our Diastasis Rehab Short Torso Splint®. When you bring the two separated muscles together you will be putting the displaced abdominal organs back to their original position. This may cause pressure on the organs above (heart) and below (pelvic floor) them.
Please stand in front of a mirror when putting on your short torso splint so you put it on correctly. Please limit taking on and off the short torso splint to no more than 3-4 times a day. Continuously pulling the hook velcro off the loop velcro will prevent it from sticking. Velcro does wear out. That is the nature of velcro if you overuse it. The hook part of the velcro takes away the filaments on the loop part of the velcro. So adjust it instead of pulling the hook off the loop.
Problems Wearing a Diastasis Rehab Short Torso Splint®
The area being splinted is a difficult area to splint because it is between two sets of bones. The ribcage on top and the pelvis on the bottom.
So it will be difficult to keep it in place. Wearing it over a fitted undergarment or t-shirt seems and also velcroing the bottom arm of the splint to your undergarment seems to help. It is also important to teach your child how to stand up and sit down or bend over with a flat back. Know that your child will have to adjust the splint.
If your child is putting their splint on correctly and their belly bulges out the bottom, it means they need more coverage and should wear two splints. Make sure you take the measurement from the bottom of your sternum to your belly button to see if they need to wear two regular torso splints, regular torso and short torso on the bottom or two short torso splints.
If you still have questions relating to the short torso splint, please read our FAQ Page.
