What is Diastasis Recti aka ‘Mummy Tummy’?

Did you know that 80% of mommies suffer from Diastasis Recti? Diastasis Recti is a separation of the rectus abdominis (abs); a common postnatal occurrence. The separation happens during pregnancies, which is caused by stretching one’s connective collagen tissue due to excessive inner-abdominal pressure and resulting in a bigger belly. The more stretched the connective tissues are, the weaker it gets; which makes it harder for the abdominal muscles to heal.

For all mommies, we know that childbirth can be extremely tiring and taxing on the body. Sometimes, mothers may experience various postnatal injuries such as diastasis recti, injuries and muscle strains – that may not heal on their own and will need treatments to improve on it. In some rare and severe cases, they can cause constipation, hernia, back pain and breathing difficulties; due to the weakened support in your abdomen.

Jumping from not exercising to sweating out hard may be a little bit difficult or too big a step for most mommies. Healthsprings Laser and Aesthetic Clinic provides a gradual and easy start to getting there, with our Featured Treatment – Diastasis Recti Treatment. This treatment focuses on treating the Mummy Tummy to support recovery and help mommies regain control of their body. As a new mummy visiting our clinic, we will first do a comprehensive consultation with our experienced doctor as well as a detailed assessment to check for any separation and weakening of the abdominal muscles.

 

For rapid recovery and strengthening of the abdominal muscles, we use HIFEM technology for muscle rehabilitation and muscle toning without any pain, downtime or spending hours at the gym. For post-natal care, we use focused electromagnetic energy to help with re-educating the muscles of individuals to strengthen pelvic floor and treat urinary incontinence. Depending on individuals, they can choose to combine this treatment with other treatments to achieve desired results in a short span.

Post-delivery recovery usually takes about 6-8 weeks or more, depending on the mommy’s body and delivery journey.
