Diastasis recti, a common yet often misunderstood condition, affects many individuals, especially new mothers. At The Dr Jenni Clinic, we understand the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment to improve the quality of life for those affected. This article will explore diastasis recti, its symptoms, and how EMSCULPT NEO, an innovative non-invasive treatment, can help to alleviate the problem.
What is Diastasis Recti?
Diastasis recti is a condition where the two large parallel bands of muscles that run vertically down the abdomen (rectus abdominis) separate. This separation often occurs due to the stretching of the connective tissue (Linea alba) that holds these muscles together. Although most common in pregnant women, diastasis recti can also affect men and women of all ages.
Symptoms of Diastasis Recti
Some common symptoms of diastasis recti include:
- A bulge in the abdominal area
- Lower back pain
- Poor posture
- Difficulty in performing core exercises
- Constipation and bloating
- Urinary incontinence
If you suspect you have diastasis recti, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Introducing EMSCULPT NEO
EMSCULPT NEO is a ground-breaking non-invasive treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) heating and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology. This unique combination helps to reduce fat, build muscle, and improve diastasis recti in a safe and effective way.
How Does EMSCULPT NEO Work?
EMSCULPT NEO delivers HIFEM energy to stimulate muscle contractions in the targeted area, which builds muscle mass and strength. Simultaneously, the RF heating technology raises the temperature of the fat cells, causing them to break down and be naturally eliminated by the body. The combination of these two technologies leads to improved muscle tone and a reduction in fat, ultimately helping to close the gap caused by diastasis recti.
Benefits of EMSCULPT NEO for Diastasis Recti
- Non-invasive treatment: EMSCULPT NEO is a non-surgical procedure, eliminating the need for anaesthesia, incisions, or downtime.
- Quick and efficient: Each treatment session takes only 30 minutes, and most patients notice visible results after just a few sessions.
- Safe and effective: EMSCULPT NEO is FDA-cleared and has been clinically proven to reduce diastasis recti by up to 16%.
- Improved core strength: EMSCULPT NEO not only helps to close the abdominal gap but also strengthens the core muscles, which can alleviate back pain and improve posture.
