Know About The Diastasis Recti Treatment

Diastasis recti are the condition that occurs when the muscles of your abdominals are separated. It is a common condition in pregnant women and it can cause a number of problems including back pain, infertility, and even difficult labor. It can be life-threatening too, as the baby may get stuck in the amniotic sac as well. If you are suffering from this condition, why not look for a natural solution to the problem first?

A number of natural herbs and supplements have been tested and proven to be effective for treating this condition. In this article, we will talk about a few of those herbs and their effectiveness. Diastasis recti treatment can be done by the following tips;

  1. Massage your abdomen with a warm massage ball

This is the first thing that you should do when you feel a rupture in your abdominal muscles. Massaging the area can prevent it from becoming bigger. The best kind of massage ball to use is the one that is made of hard but flexible material, like a tennis ball, then use slowly and carefully to massage your abdomen going down slowly towards the pelvic bone.

It has been suggested that you should do this at least three times a day, every day for at least two weeks. If there is no improvement then it might be time to look for some other treatment for diastasis recti.

  1. Take your multi-vitamin

There are a number of nutrients that play an important role in strengthening your abdominal muscles. You can get these nutrients from taking a multi-vitamin. There are a number of different multis that you can choose from; however, it’s best to use one that is tailored for pregnant women if you are pregnant, so that you can get the right amount of vitamin D3, calcium, and iron.

Also, if you have any type of digestive problem or food allergies then this may affect the absorption of these nutrients and hence hinder your diastasis recti treatment. So always check with your physician first before taking any vitamins or supplements during pregnancy.

  1. Take Calcium Carbonate powder

Calcium carbonate is a great supplement to take if you are suffering from diastasis recti. It helps promote the contraction of your muscles, which goes towards healing and strengthening your abdominal muscles. It also helps improve your bone density and prevent osteoporosis later on down the road.

There are two basic forms of calcium carbonate; oyster shell or bone meal and dolomite or limestone. Both of these supplements can be easily bought in most health stores either in powdered form or as capsules/ soft gels (you can ask for human-grade capsules as well). You can take about 1000mg of calcium carbonate powder per day to help with diastasis recti treatment.

  1. Treatment with Acupuncture

If you are suffering from diastasis recti, acupuncture may be a great option for treating it. Acupuncture helps encourage your body’s natural healing abilities and increases the blood flow to the area of your abdominal muscles that is weakening and causing the diastasis recti. A qualified acupuncturist will be able to determine if you have diastasis recti or a possible underlying cause of it.

When trying acupuncture, you should make sure you find an expert in this field, someone who has years of experience doing this kind of treatment and has had a lot of success with it.

  1. Essential Oils Treatment

This is a very simple and unique way to treat diastasis recti. When you are pregnant, your body starts producing a hormone known as relaxin. This hormone is the reason for the stretching of your abdominal muscles and why it is so common that you will feel this separation during pregnancy.

Your abdomen may be a little stretched out, but it shouldn’t hurt or cause you any pain.
