Will wearing the diastasis rehab splint® make my muscles weaker?

This is a very valid question as some abdominal binders do weaken your muscles.  The diastasis rehab splint® will NOT weaken your abdominal muscles.  The purpose of the splint is to pull your separated muscles together.  Bringing the muscles closer together makes the Tupler Technique® exercises more effective, thus making your abdominals stronger.  By bringing the muscles closer together it helps you to feel the muscles whilst you are doing the exercises, and at the same time puts the connective tissue it a better position to heal.

Ultimately closing your diastasis recti is all about healing your connective tissue.  Compression garments that bring the belly back to the spine will weaken your muscles as they are doing the work that’s your muscles should be doing.  The Tupler Technique® programme strengthens your muscles so that they can do the job themselves.

  • What other people are saying about the Tupler Technique®

    "By continuing to do the Tupler Technique® exercises every day, your Mummy Tummy goes away and that aching back will disappear as well".
    Elle Macpherson (actress/model/businesswoman)


    "Julie Tupler is an expert on diastasis recti".
    Dr. Oz (Oprah & Friends)

    "The Tupler Technique® ...is great for maintaining the results of stomach surgery".
    Dr Sharon Giese Plastic Surgeon (in New Beauty Magazine vol 4 issue 4 Fall/Winter 2008)

    "I have just completed a 6 week workshop with Camilla. Although my "gap" hasn't closed completely yet, my stomach looks a huge amount better and stronger than it did at the start of the programme. I have had a diastasis recti for almost 3 years and have tried everything, including specialist physiotherapists, but this programme has produced by far the best results. I have been really impressed."
    Rebecca Holburn Wimbledon

    "I wasn't convinced I would ever be able to have my tummy back to normal after my pregnancies without an operation until I came across Tummy Tribe and tried the
    Tupler Technique®. The splint is so easy to wear and even with 3 small children I managed to fit in the exercises. Seeing improvements in under 2 weeks also spurred me on. I would recommend the Tupler Technique® to anyone."

    Rachel Durden-Smith Wandsworth

    "I found the one to one session extremely useful and informative"
    Sigrid Aruliah Surrey
