Diastasis Recti

A distended abdomen or diastasis recti, is a common issue that can happen during or after childbirth. In fact, more than half of all women may experience this issue after giving birth. If you have this condition, we may have your solution. At BETTER LIFE Family Chiropractic & Wellness, we can address this issue using our safe Emsculpt NEO® system.

What Causes Diastasis Recti?

The birthing process puts a lot of pressure on your abdomen muscles. The abdominal area is made of left and right ab muscles that are separated by a thin line of connective tissue called the linea alba. During pregnancy, these muscles are pushed outward and stretched to make room for the baby.

A diastasis recti occurs when the linea alba is overstretched and unable to go back to normal. This causes the abdominal muscles to remain separated.

This issue is not an inherently dangerous or harmful condition. It can, however, cause a range of physical and emotional issues.

How Can Emsculpt NEO® Help?

The Emsculpt NEO® technology uses high-intensity, focused electromagnetic energy (or HIFEM) that triggers supramaximal contractions. These types of contractions cannot be achieved with ordinary, voluntary muscle action. Emsculpt NEO® is also FDA-cleared for “the improvement of abdominal tone, development of a firmer abdomen and strengthening of the abdominal muscles”. The results are backed by 7 clinical studies that consistently demonstrate 30% fat loss, 25% muscle mass gain, 19% reduction in abdominal separation (diastasis recti), and a 5.9 cm (2.3 inches) reduction in waist circumference.
