Diastasis Rehab Lose Your Mummy Tummy® DVD: This DVD is based on research from Columbia University Department of Physical Therapy (March, 2001) that the Tupler Technqiue abdominal exercises make the diastasis (separation of the outermost abdominal muscle) smaller. Since this outermost abdominal muscle is the support system for the back and the organs in front a smaller diastasis means less back problems and getting rid of the mummy tummyÂ®.
This 2 hour dvd consists of:
-Anatomy of the abdominal muscles
-Causes of a diastasis
-How to check yourself for a diastasis
-Splinting your diastasis
-Tupler Technique exercises

DIASTASIS REHAB SPLINT® The splint is for all moms to wear after pregnancy, no matter when they had their baby. The purpose of the splint is to help pull together the two halves of the outermost abdominal muscle (recti) which may have separated during pregnancy. When the muscles separate the connective tissue that joins them stretches sideways. The larger the separation the thinner this piece of connective tissue becomes. The recti muscle is the support system for your back and a support system for your organs. This separation weakens the support system for the back causing back problems and also weakens the support system for the organs causing the "mummy tummy". The mummy tummy is actually your protruding organs that are not being effectively supported by this thin piece of connective tissue. That is why it is important to close this separation so the organs are being supported by your muscles and so you get a flat belly!
This separation does not automatically go back together after you give birth. That is why women show faster during their second pregnancy! To close this separation, it is also important to wear the splint all the time under your clothing and especially when wearing a front-loading baby carrier.
Wearing this splint makes the Tupler Technique® abdominal exercises more effective because it makes the starting position of the muscles closer together.
Hand wash and air dry.
Please measure your waist before ordering the Diastasis Rehab Splint® as it is NOT RETURNABLE.
GET THE RIGHT SIZE You will need to take TWO measurements to get your correct size.
1. Upper Back - measure from one underarm to the other underarm. This is the MOST IMPORTANT measurement. You do not want the pad of the splint to be too big. If the pad reaches to the front of your body, it does not allow much room to pull the muscles together.
2. Circumference of body over your belly button - Measure in the evening when your belly is the largest. Your muscles should be relaxed when you measure. Waist size does not determine belly size.
If you do not have a measuring tape, measure with a piece of string and then measure the string with a ruler.
Please look at the chart above. It lists your back size and circumference size. If you find your circumference size to be larger than the range on the chart, then the arms of the splint need to be longer. For this reason we have developed Extenders. The Extenders will attach to the three arms, providing you with the length that you need. The Extenders are also ideal during pregnancy. It allows you to wear your same splint during the second and third trimester.
After a couple of weeks of doing the exercises your belly will become smaller and the elastic arms of your splint may become longer. You can then hem the arms to make them smaller.
Please note, velcro does wear out. You may need to replace the velcro with a seamstress after 24.7 continuous wear. You can also purchase a second discounted splint. Please use the coupon code: SECONDSPLINT upon checkout.
