The 6-Step Diastasis Program
Our 6 step program is based on the concept of treating the Diastasis as an injury similar to a strained muscle; because that’s basically what is.
Our 6 Step Program uses the following therapies:
Heat application helps soften muscles and increase blood flow to the injured muscle. It increases the supply of oxygen, nutrients and antibodies (defensive cells) which promote new cell generation and growth. It also enhances the function of the Lymphatic system which helps removes debris, metabolic waste, and carbon dioxide that can interfere with the healing process.
EMS devices are used as safe muscle stimulation. EMS, which is the acronym for electric muscle stimulator, is an efficient way of treating muscle injuries by the transmission of electronic pulses that cause passive exercise. The stimulation, contraction and relaxation cycle created by EMS loosens muscle fibers, increases blood flow and stimulates muscle growth.
Massage can help relieve tight muscles and increase circulation allowing essential blood and nutrients to reach the injured area. Better blood supply creates better healing.
Moisturize and Hydrate
Post pregnancy the superficial skin on the abdomen becomes loose and wrinkled. You may have developed stretch marks or discolored skin. Our Natural moisturizer hydrates the skin, promotes circulation, and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties both essential for tissue repair.
And always water is essential for any tissue repair and healthy body function.
Binding is perhaps the most important of all the steps. With the weakening of the Linea Alba comes the weight of the inner organs pressing against the abdominal wall causing more separation. Continuous pressure on the abdominal wall will not only cause superficial skin damage but also prevent the organs from moving back into place. It is crucial that you maintain a supportive environment for the abdominal muscle to heal. Think of it as a mold, if you take it off too soon the contents will spill back out, if you keep it in the mold the contents can stabilize and solidify.
Safe and well organized exercise routines jump start your recovery. The body naturally wants to heal its self and is just waiting for the catalyst. The most effective way to boost your metabolism is through exercise. Abdominal Connections offers a variety of safe and effective exercise for all healthy post natal women not just through your Diastasis Recti recovery but to prepare you for any other exercise routines you’d like to practice in the future.
