Abdominal Diastasis Recti is a very common condition among women who have given birth. Diastasis Recti is a separation of the outermost abdominal muscle (six pack) called the Rectus Abdominis. It is usually a postpartum belly condition. This post is sponsored by Abdominal Connections, a company that specializes in abdominal diastasis recti postpartum tummy rehabilitation.
What Is Abdominal Diastasis Recti?
During pregnancy, the connective tissue between the abdominal muscles naturally stretches and thins. In many cases the gap heals naturally within 4-12 weeks after birth. In the case of Abdominal Diastasis Recti the gap does not close completely and the weakened connective tissues gives very little support for the inner organs. The organs press against the abdominal wall causing your belly to still look pregnant to some degree.
Abdominal Diastasis Recti Exercises And Postpartum Belly Binding
I must first and foremost stress that if you have a medical condition, or think you might, please consult with a doctor about the condition and appropriate treatment.
Abdominal Connections offers an at home rehabilitation program for women who have been diagnosed with the condition Diastasis recti and all women seeking to regain abdominal integrity post pregnancy. The Diastasis recti rehabiliation involve Diastasis recti exercises and a postpartum belly binding. I myself was never diagnosed with Diastasis Recti so I never knew that these products existed but I think I would have loved to have them to help my abdominal muscles and connective tissue heal faster (so now maybe I wouldn’t have this little tummy pooch!)
Abdominal Connections offers a 6 Step Program that promotes healing from the inside out using all the tools available and addressing every detailed component associated with the Diastasis-recti condition. The Abdominal Connections program teaches you how to safely modify daily activities, from carrying your baby to getting out of bed. In this way, you can feel confident getting through your day without worsening your condition and protect any progress you’ve already made. The Abdominal Connections Video On demand allows you to take charge of your Diastasis-recti exercise. It teaches you safe and effective exercises that not only facilitate healing your diastasis but tone and strengthen your entire body.
