Diastasis recti is a separation of the outermost abdominal muscles (rectus abdominis). It is a condition that has been ignored by medical professionals because treatment for it has not been taught as part of their medical education. Side effects of diastasis recti are back and hip pain, abdominal hernias, GI problems such as bloating and constipation, pelvic floor problems and poor posture. This condition can put a pregnant woman at risk for a c-section and a person having abdominal surgery at risk for an incisional hernia. Improper exercise can make this condition worse!
In the webinar, Julie Tupler, RN, creator of the research and evidenced based Tupler Technique®, will teach:
- Causes of a diastasis on women, men and children
- Effects on the body
- How to check for a diastasis 4 steps of the Tupler Technique®
- How to incorporate the Tupler Technnique® into an exercise routine so it is “diastasis safe”
- On completion of this webinar, participants will understand the importance of checking for a diastasis and incorporating the Tupler Technique® into their clients exercise routine.
