Do you have a Bulging Belly?


The Tupler Technique® is the only research-based exercise program proven to effectively treat a diastasis recti. 

The goal of the Tupler Technique® is to heal the weakened connective tissue that joins your outermost abdominal muscles using the following 4 steps:

1. The Tupler Technique® seated and back-lying exercises
2. Splinting the separated muscles
3. Strengthening and learning how to use the transverse muscle
4. Getting up and down correctly

What is Diastasis Recti?
A diastasis recti is a separation of your outermost abdominal muscles. The job of these muscles (called rectus abdominis), is to support your back and your organs.

What causes it?
Continuous stretching of, and intra-abdominal force and pressure on, this connective tissue that joins your outermost abdominal muscles. 

          Common causes of intra-abdominal force and pressure on connective tissue:
                   - Pregnancy and childbirth
                   - Exercising incorrectly...crunches and planks can cause it and/or make it worse!!!!
                   - Movements where you arch your back will flare your ribs
                   - Cross over movements (like swinging a tennis racquet or a golf club)

Why should you care if you have it?
Separated muscles are weak muscles. Separated muscles cannot do their job of supporting your back and organs. To achieve a strong core, your muscles must be close together.


When the muscles separate, the connective tissue (linea alba) joining these muscles stretches sideways.  This sideways stretching of the connective tissue causes it to become thinner and weaker.  So what happens is this weak, thin connective tissue is now ineffectively supporting your  back and organs, instead of the muscles that should be if they were close together.

Side Effects of Diastasis Recti:
 - back pain
 - poor posture
 - pelvic floor problems
 - gastrointestinal disturbances like constipation and bloating
 - hernias
 - an "outie" belly button
 - a "mummy tummy" (that little belly that you can’t get rid of after having children no matter how much weight that  you lose, or that little belly that you have that makes people think that you've had children when you have not)

How do you fix it?
A diastasis can be closed on anyone at any time. Closing a diastasis is all about healing the connective tissue.   

Healing the connective tissue is all about putting it in a better (narrow) position, bringing blood flow to it and protecting it when doing any type of activity.

The Tupler Technique®  heals connective tissue naturally using 4 simple, non invasive steps.

There is another option...some people choose to have surgery  to repair a diastasis.  This should be your very last resort! The surgery to repair this requires a hipbone to hipbone incision.  The recovery from this surgery is very difficult.

If you do decide on surgery, your abdominals must be strengthened beforehand to maintain the integrity of the sutures which easily lose their integrity.  The Tupler Technique® is recommended prior to any abdominal surgery.

How to get started!
Come in to get a FREE belly check and find out if you have a diastasis!! This takes about 15 to 20 minutes.  If you have one, we will give you the measurements of your diastasis and discuss the program if you are interested in repairing it.
