Diastasis Recti: What it is and How to get rid of it?
什么是「腹直肌分离」与怎么改善?

Diastasis recti is a condition where the abdominal muscles separate, often occurring during pregnancy. This is due to the stretching and separation of abdominal muscles to accommodate the growing uterus. This gap in the muscles can lead to a protruding belly and weakened core.

Diastasis recti is a condition where the abdominal muscles separate, often occurring during pregnancy. This is due to the stretching and separation of abdominal muscles to accommodate the growing uterus. This gap in the muscles can lead to a protruding belly and weakened core.

Other factors can also contribute to or exacerbate diastasis recti, including:

1. Excessive abdominal pressure: Conditions or activities that involve consistent, excessive abdominal pressure, such as obesity or heavy lifting.
2. Multiple pregnancies: Women carrying multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc.) may be more susceptible to diastasis recti.
3. Improper exercise: Performing exercises that strain the abdominal muscles or using incorrect form can contribute to diastasis recti.
4. Age: As individuals age, the connective tissues in the body can naturally weaken, potentially contributing to diastasis recti.
5. Genetic factors: Some people may be genetically predisposed to weaker connective tissues, increasing their likelihood of developing diastasis recti.

Signs of diastasis recti may include:

1. A noticeable gap or bulge in the abdominal area, especially when engaging the core muscles
2. Back pain
3. Constipation
4. Difficulty stabilizing the trunk.

Untreated or unmanaged diastasis recti can lead to various complications, including:

1. Weakened core stability: Diastasis recti can compromise the strength and stability of the core muscles, affecting overall posture and body mechanics.
2. Back pain: The weakened abdominal muscles may contribute to increased stress on the back, potentially leading to persistent back pain.
3. Pelvic floor issues: Diastasis recti can be associated with pelvic floor dysfunction, leading to problems such as urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.
4. Digestive issues: Weak abdominal muscles may contribute to digestive problems, including constipation and bloating.
5. Hernias: In severe cases, the weakened abdominal wall may lead to the development of hernias, where organs or tissues protrude through the abdominal muscles.
6. Body image concerns: Diastasis recti can impact the appearance of the abdominal area, causing concerns about body image and self-esteem.

How to Improve Diastasis Recti After Baby?

Addressing diastasis recti often involves exercises that strengthen the core and promote healing of the separated abdominal muscles. Pelvic tilts, transverse abdominal exercises, and kegel exercises may be beneficial. In some cases, surgery might be considered, but non-invasive approaches are generally explored first.

Surgery for diastasis recti typically involves a procedure called abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. During this surgery, the abdominal muscles are tightened, and excess skin and fat are removed. While surgery can be effective, it’s usually considered when conservative measures like exercise and physical therapy haven’t provided satisfactory results.

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) can be used as a complementary treatment for diastasis recti.
Focused electromagnetic field passes through all skin and fat in order to effectively stimulate the muscle, providing the most intensive continuous contractions which is ideal for muscle growth, and also inducing apoptosis of fat.

This non-invasive medical technology strengthens and re-educates muscles via interaction of the magnetic field with the tissue of the patient. Contrary to voluntary muscle contractions, the supramaximal contractions are independent of brain function. It uses a specific range of frequencies that does not allow muscle relaxation between two consecutive stimulations.

腹直肌分离是一种腹部肌肉分离的情况,通常发生在怀孕期间。这是由于腹肌被拉伸和分离,以适应不断增⻓的子宫。肌肉之间的间隙可能导致腹部凸出和核心肌肉减弱。

腹直肌分离相对常⻅,尤其在怀孕期间和产后。据估计,相当一部分孕妇在怀孕期间经历了不同程度的腹直肌分离。尽管它通常会在产后期自然恢复,但对于一些人来说,分离仍然存在,并且可能需要有针对性的干预,如锻炼、物理治疗,或在某些情况下,手术。

其他因素也可能导致或加重腹直肌分离,包括:

1. 过度的腹部压力:涉及持续、过度腹部压力的状况或活动,如肥胖或举重。
2. 多次怀孕:怀有多个胎儿的女性可能更容易患上腹直肌分离。
3. 不正确的锻炼:进行对腹肌有负担的锻炼或使用不正确的动作可能导致腹直肌分 离。
4. 年龄:随着年龄增⻓,身体的结缔组织可能自然减弱,可能会导致腹直肌分离。
5. 遗传因素:有些人可能在基因上更容易患有结缔组织较弱,增加患上腹直肌分离的 可能性。

腹直肌分离的迹象可能包括:

1. 腹部区域明显的间隙或突出
2. 背痛
3. 便秘
4. 难以稳定躯干

未经治疗或管理的腹直肌分离可能导致各种并发症,包括:

1. 核心稳定性减弱:腹直肌分离可能损害核心肌肉的力量和稳定性,影响整体姿势和身体机械。
2. 背痛:腹部肌肉减弱可能导致背部增加压力,可能导致持续的背痛。
3. 骨盆底问题:腹直肌分离可能与骨盆底功能障碍有关,导致尿失禁或骨盆器官脱垂等问题。
4. 消化问题:腹部肌肉减弱可能导致消化问题,包括便秘和腹胀。
5. 疝气:在严重情况下,腹部壁的减弱可能导致疝气的发生,器官或组织穿过腹肌凸出。
6. 身体形象问题:腹直肌分离可能影响腹部区域的外观,引发有关身体形象和自尊的担忧。

怎么改善腹直肌分离?

处理腹直肌分离通常涉及加强核心和促进分离的腹肌愈合的锻炼。骨盆倾斜、横腹肌 锻炼和凯格尔锻炼可能有益。在某些情况下,可能会考虑手术,但通常会首先探讨非 侵入性的方法,如锻炼和物理治疗。

腹直肌分离手术通常涉及一种称为腹壁整形术或腹部整形术的程序。在这种手术中, 腹肌被紧缩,多余的皮肤和脂肪被切除。虽然手术可能是有效的,但通常只在锻炼和 物理治疗未能取得满意效果时才考虑。

电肌肉刺激(EMS)可以作为腹直肌分离的辅助治疗。聚焦的电磁场穿过所有皮肤和 脂肪,有效刺激肌肉,提供最强烈的持续收缩,这对肌肉生⻓很理想,并诱导脂肪凋 亡。这种无创的医疗技术通过磁场与患者组织的相互作用来加强和重新教育肌肉。与 自愿肌肉收缩不同,最大肌肉收缩与大脑功能无关。它使用一定范围的频率,不允许 在两次刺激之间肌肉松弛。
