Emsculpt Helps Eliminate Diastasis Recti Concerns

Despite following a healthy diet and committing to regular exercise, some women may still look as though they are several months pregnant well after they have given birth. In many of these cases, women are suffering from diastasis recti – a separation of the abdominal muscles that can give us a 6-pack.

In the past, surgery was the only option for diastasis recti. However, a new non-invasive technology called Emsculpt has the ability to transform the abdomen and significantly improve diastasis recti without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

Keep reading to learn what is diastasis recti condition and how Emsculpt can help.

What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti is a condition in which the rectus abdominis muscles separate and produce a pooching or doming appearance to the abdomen. It’s particularly noticeable when someone transitions from a reclining to standing position.

Diastasis recti often occurs post-pregnancy, as once the midline connective tissue is stretched, other muscles and fascia supporting the abdomen become affected as well.

Additionally, diastasis recti is associated with a weakened core and pelvic floor, resulting in instability in the mid-section region.

What Causes Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti is not caused by pregnancy, but rather, it’s a symptom of the excessive and unsupported intraabdominal pressure that occurs when a woman is carrying a child.

As a result of this extra load, the rectus abdominis muscles are pushed farther apart, creating a division between the two sides.

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that is able to burn fat and build muscle simultaneously. It is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment, and the first of its kind with this dual capability.

Plus, Emsculpt is the world’s only non-invasive butt lift and provides firmer, tighter, and lifted buttocks without surgery or injectables.

How Can Emsculpt Help With Diastasis Recti?

Emsculpt uses an innovative high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to initiate extremely powerful muscle contractions. These supramaximal contractions are unlike anything that we can achieve through the most rigorous workout.

As a result, muscle tissue is forced to undergo remodeling of its inner structure to produce muscle growth and definition in the abdomen and buttocks.

Does Emsculpt Really Improve Diastasis Recti?

In 7 independent clinical studies, based in the U.S., Emsculpt demonstrated a 19% average reduction in subcutaneous fat, a 16% average increase in muscle mass, and an 11% average improvement in diastasis recti.

These findings illustrate the ability of Emsculpt to effectively repair diastasis recti as well as reduce subcutaneous fat and strengthen and build muscle for a slimmer, stronger, and more toned mid-section.
