Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti

Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti

I have had the experience of wearing an Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti. The problem was, it wasn’t a certified or specific brace for diastasis recti. It was a gym (sweat) brace, which made you sweat on your midsection when you exercised. It claimed to “hold your abdominals to the wall, to ensure proper movement and reduced pressure.” I wore it religiously when I worked out, and even as a ‘sucker’ to hold my tummy in after having my kids. I was determined to be slim again and did anything and everything at the gym to try and get rid of the ‘midsection.’

I hear this so often as a fitness professional. I even had a client last night who mentioned she just wanted to get rid of her tummy flab- “you know, the bits you have to live with when you have children.” I felt like saying to her- well no, it's not the bits you have to live with. There is another way! I see them wearing Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti and complaining that it’s not doing anything. Well, it’s because you are not actually treating the medical condition in the first place. So many Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti doesn’t position the recti walls in the proper position and push back the transverse (and ultimately stretch the connective tissue- not strengthen it. The ultimate program: A larger tummy after birth can be very different from the medical condition of diastasis recti- and often the modes of treatment get confused, and misused.

An Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti for diastasis recti is much different. Not only in the way it is made and worn but the fundamental assistance it gives to protect and position the connective tissue in the proper way, to aid healing of the connective tissue. It teaches the client to move in a safe way. Normal splints actually do the opposite- especially if your diastasis is more than four centimeters.

Ann Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti should have support to the lumbar spine, taking the pressure off the back, and allowing the core to be strengthened when moving or doing exercise, have three bands to move the connective tissue in place and be secure, but not provide pressure to the connective tissue.

The Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti which is part of the No Mummy Tummy programs are a registered product of the Tupler Technique and one of the only certified products to be used in the treatment of Diastasis Recti. The Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti is used to put the connective tissue in a better position to heal, taking the stretch off the overstretched connective tissue. This makes the ‘gap’ narrower and promotes closer and strengthening. The belly splint for diastasis recti also protects the connective tissue when moving or doing exercise.

The No Mummy Tummy utilises the Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti in a four-part program to reduce the abdominal separation. The nine-week programs (trainer or individually led) teach you how to properly move safely without stretching or damaging the connective tissue and exercising properly whilst always wearing the Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti. The Abdominal Brace for Diastasis Recti is worn 24/7, except to bathe, to ensure the connective tissue is always kept in the proper position for quicker healing.
