Anything that doesn’t involve surgery has to be good! If you can treat your diastasis recti without surgical treatment; well that’s even better! I know one of my friends who would have jumped at the change to have Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatmentrather than surgery because of all of her complications that she experienced through her hernia surgery. While it did reduce her separation, it did cause her to have another keyhole surgery, a secondary infection, back issues and leakage of her wound. She has endured over two years of side effects from the surgery and probably would have not thought twice to sign up and pay the fee for the trainer-led program rather than pursue this route and have to deal with the years of pain and hospital visits. 

If I haven’t convinced your right there that Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatmentis the better option, I think you need to speak to me further (or her) to convince you that it is the better option. 

If you had to do about half an hour of exercises a day to strengthen your transverse muscle and incorporate exercise slowly from week six and see results in a rapid fashion; would it be worth it? If your back pain, pelvic incompetence, and podgy tummy started to reduce from week 1; would undertaking a Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatment be worth it? I am certainly not saying that the Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatmentroute is anything but easy, but it certainly is compared to years of recovery and side effects which sometimes aren’t reversible?! 

Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatment involves a four-part process which will strengthen your transverse muscles and heal the connective tissue that joins the recti abdominal muscles together. By strengthening the connective tissue, you may be able to reduce the separation of the muscles. Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatment is about positioning and protecting the weakened connective tissue. It is non-invasive and can be incorporated when you sit and watch tv, cook, clean and play with your kids. It is a practical program and the results for confidence and self-esteem sometimes outway the activities and transverse squeezes you will have to do throughout.

A key part of Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatment is the positioning of the recti muscles; taking off the stretch from the connective tissue. This is done by using the abdominal splint provided with the No Mummy Tummy program. While I will be honest and say I didn’t find it the most comfortable, some women on the program have literally not taken it off since starting the program as they said it provided so much comfort and security, that they have kept it on ever since starting the program.

Protection of the muscles is another key Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatment which is integral to the program, and ultimately the reduction in your diastasis recti separation. To reduce the stretch of the connective tissue, you must ensure you cease activities which put a stretch on the connective tissue; particularly in a forward or sideways direction. Even activities such as pilates 100’s, roll-ups, bending over to pick something off the floor or yoga positions will place a stretch on the connective tissue. Teaching clients how to move in a safe manner is key to successful Diastasis Recti Non-Surgical Treatment.
