The splint is specifically designed to treat a dysfunctional, non-working core including Diastasis Recti.
We recommend a splint for many reasons, including:
- Support system while you reconnect with your tummy and get it strong again;
- Puts the connective tissue in a better position to heal and makes the core rehab exercises more effective;
- Reminds you to do your core exercises;
- Reminds you to stay in better alignment putting your body in a position to strengthen and use your abdominals all day.
Does it cause atrophy to your core muscles?
Not if you do your exercises! If you are not doing core exercises and learning to use your core in all that you do all day long, do not wear a splint since wearing a splint alone will not fix your abdominal separation nor make you stronger.
NOTE: 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 quickly prevent it from sticking since Velcro does wear out. The hook part of the velcro takes away the threads on the loop part of the velcro. So adjust it instead of pulling the hook off the loop.
How to Measure to Determine Size
Measure the circumference of your body over your belly button, preferable in the evening when your belly is the largest with relaxed muscles. Waist size does not determine belly size.
We also make a Short Torso splint specifically designed for the person with a Small Torso which is 6″ tall and has 2 arms (the original model is 8″ with 3 arms). Measure from the bottom of your ribs to the top of your hips and if you are 6″ or less this splint is for you.
For either of the splints (regular or short torso) look at the chart below for your circumference size. After a couple of weeks of doing the exercises your belly will become smaller and the elastic arms of your splint may stretch and become longer. Just put a hem in the arms to make them smaller.
*Remember that splints are NOT returnable due to health reasons, so please measure carefully!!
