Treating Diastasis Recti with Emsculpt: Corelife’s Unique Approach

Diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA), a condition characterized by an increased distance between the rectus abdominis muscles, affects both men and women. DRA can lead to a weakened core, poor posture, and potential back pain. Traditionally associated with postpartum women, diastasis recti can also result from significant weight changes, improper exercise, or heavy lifting, making it a concern for a diverse population – including men. At Corelife, we offer a comprehensive, customized care plan that combines educational curriculum, physiotherapy, and the state-of-the-art Emsculpt technology to address this condition quickly and effectively.

Understanding Diastasis Recti

Diastasis recti occurs when there is an increased distance between the rectus abdominis muscles along the midline of the abdomen, often due to excessive internal pressure. Weakness, thinning, and widening of the linea alba – connective tissue that holds the rectus muscles together – is also commonly seen with DRA. This can cause a noticeable bulge down the middle of the abdomen, particularly when the muscles are strained and intra-abdominal pressure increases.

Common causes include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Improper abdominal exercises
  • Heavy lifting

Common Symptoms include:

  • Abdominal bulging
  • Lower back pain
  • Poor posture
  • Core weakness

Corelife’s Comprehensive Care Plan

At Corelife, we understand the complexity of diastasis recti and offer a holistic approach to treatment. Our customized care plan is the only one of its kind, which includes:

Educational Curriculum:

  • We educate our clients about diastasis recti, its causes, symptoms, and the importance of core strength and stability.

  • Understanding the condition empowers clients to make informed decisions about their health and engage more effectively in their treatment plan.

  • Our goal is to make every client feel like the CEO of their core health – confident to maintain their results and continue progressing forward.


  • Tailored exercise programs designed to strengthen the core muscles without exacerbating DRA.

  • Focus on safe, effective movements that promote muscle re-approximation and improve overall core stability and strength.

Emsculpt Technology:

  • A ground breaking non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce powerful muscle contractions.

  • Emsculpt not only helps significantly strengthen and tone the abdominal muscles, lessening the distance between the rectus muscles as a result, but also promotes fat reduction, enhancing the overall outcome.

Emsculpt: A Revolutionary Approach

Emsculpt technology offers a significant advancement in the treatment of diastasis recti. By inducing supramaximal contractions, Emsculpt helps in:

Muscle Re-approximation:

  • The intense contractions help draw the separated muscles back together, reducing the gap caused by diastasis recti.
  • This is particularly beneficial for individuals who find it challenging to engage in traditional exercises.

Enhanced Core Strength:

  • The deep muscle stimulation provided by Emsculpt strengthens the core muscles more effectively than standard exercises.
  • Improved core strength leads to better posture, reduced back pain, and overall enhanced physical stability.

Fat Reduction:

  • Emsculpt also targets and reduces fat in the treated area, contributing to a more toned and aesthetically pleasing abdomen.
  • This dual effect of muscle building and fat reduction sets Emsculpt apart from other treatments.
