After giving birth, many mothers are worried
Their previous slender waists are gone
The flabby lower abdomen cannot be restored to its original shape
They often feel back pain, and occasionally they can’t hold back urine
Even doing sit-ups for a long time doesn’t make any changes

Rectus Abdominis Separation

The various conditions that appeared in the postpartum mother
It may be the fault of “Rectus Abdominis Separation”!
The two parallel muscles in the middle of the abdomen are the rectus abdominis
It is usually the 8-pack abs and vest line that people say

During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles will be stretched due to the bulge of the abdomen
The rectus abdominis muscles on both sides will separate from the midline of the abdomen to both sides
Generally, the rectus abdominis will slowly recover after delivery
If the abdominal wall itself is relatively thin, or the twins/fetuses are too large, excessive amniotic fluid, etc.
May cause the rectus abdominis to be difficult to recover half a year after delivery
This is called postpartum rectus abdominis dissection

What to do with Rectus Abdominis Separation?

Electromyography Biofeedback

Mother who has more severe separation of rectus abdominis can participate in pelvic floor rehabilitation training. Through the Heal Force electromyographic biofeedback device, low-frequency pulse currents are used to stimulate nerves or muscles to contract and gradually promote the recovery of lumbar muscle strength. The advantage of this method is the use of professional equipment to operate, and at the same time, accompanied by medical staff, which can effectively promote the recovery of mother’s muscle strength.

Breath Training

Abdominal breathing means that when you inhale with a little force, the lower abdomen bulges, and when you exhale, the lower abdomen is consciously recessed and exhausted. During abdominal breathing, blood will flow more to the moving pelvic and abdominal cavity along with the breathing, so that the organs and pelvic floor muscles in the pelvic and abdominal cavity can get sufficient blood circulation, and promote the recovery of the pelvic floor muscles and rectus abdominis. Breathing is a commonly used rehabilitation method for postpartum mothers. It can be carried out in conjunction with exercise training such as abdomen and hip lift.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is often carried out in conjunction with other training and rehabilitation methods. Through professional massage therapy, it can promote metabolism and reduce fat accumulation. Cooperated with independent training, it can restore the elasticity and tension of the abdominal skin, muscles, and fascia effect.

With the popularization of the concept of postpartum rehabilitation, more and more postpartum mothers are gradually paying attention to postpartum rehabilitation. The sooner the rehabilitation training for postpartum mothers, the better. Normally, 42 days to half a year after delivery is postpartum rehabilitation. During this golden period, through professional training, mothers can recover faster from the effects of childbirth.
