Diastasis Rehab Splint® Short Torso

$99.00

Diastasis Rehab Splint® is a core element of the Tupler Technique® program. The Splint works by positioning both the connective tissue and the muscles by encouraging them to move closer together. By bringing the muscles closer together you are able to feel your muscles working better making the exercises more effective as they move in a backward motion instead of sideways.

Wearing a Diastasis Rehab Splint® is just ONE of the 4 steps of the Tupler Technique® Program.  You must do the other 3 steps to close your diastasis. If you are just wearing the splint and not doing the exercises you will not close your diastasis.

The splint must be worn at all times, even when you sleep. If you break your leg you wear the cast all the time to continuously keep the two separated ends of the bone together so they can heal. It is the same with connective tissue. You must continuously keep it in the same narrow position so it heals. You need to wear the splint until the connective tissue is shallow. 

The pad on the splint is made of neoprene. The arms of the splint are made of elastic. Elastic does contain latex.  It is recommended to wear the splint over a fitted undergarment or shapewear.

Contraindications

If you have a medical condition please speak to your doctor about wearing a splint and doing our program.

There are many ways to modify our program for many medical conditions. This splint can be worn during pregnancy. We recommend starting to wear it in your second trimester when you are feeling better.

Wearing a splint can cause nausea which is a common symptom in your first trimester. The exercises, however, can be started in the first trimester.

If you still have questions relating to the splint, please read our FAQ Page.
Instructions

You will wear the splint all the time except while bathing. It can be worn over a fitted undergarment or directly on the skin. The way you move your body will affect how the 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.

Please stand in front of a mirror when putting on your splint so you put it on correctly. Please limit taking on and off the splint to no more than 3-4 times a day. Continuously pulling the hook velcro off the loop velcro will prevent it from sticking as velcro does wear out.
