What in the World is Ab Separation?

There’s a condition called Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA) or simply diastasis recti. The condition is characterized by a separation of the muscles that form the abdominal wall. Typically, the muscles meet together at the midline forming a cylinder that keeps all of the abdominal organs in place. When ab separation occurs, pressure from the organs can push out, causing problems with your core strength, stability and sometimes even visible protrusions. Ab separation is common after pregnancy and postpartum or after abdominal surgery.    

Corelife Wellness - Repairing Ab Separation with Venus Ab Rehab

Diastasis Recti Repair Without the Crunches

Many women try intensive ab workouts for diastasis recti repair. Many of those women become frustrated and exhausted by the routine and the lack of results. That’s because exercise alone is often not enough to reactivate ab muscles. At Corelife Wellness, we use electromagnetic stimulation to reactivate the core muscles so that ab separation can be corrected without crunches and ab workouts. Get in touch with us to learn more about our Venus Ab Rehab Therapy to correct ab separation and bring your core back to life.

Pelvic Floor Exercises Are Hard

In the same way that ab muscle workouts are sometimes not a fix for diastasis recti, pelvic floor exercises like Kegels are not always a fix for pelvic dysfunction like incontinence and prolapsed uterus. Doing pelvic floor exercises properly is hard. Keeping up the habit is equally difficult for many women. Our Libby Chair Pelvic Therapy provides the fitness benefit of over 11,000 Kegels in the course of a 30-minute session. In addition, the electromagnetic stimulation wakes up pelvic floor muscles, increasing blood flow and improving elasticity in ways that pelvic floor exercises alone cannot. Call us to talk about your struggles with pelvic floor exercises, and let us tell you more about the benefits of Libby. 

Urinary Frequency and other Pelvic Dysfunction

Pelvic dysfunction like urinary frequency or feeling the urge to pee all the time is very common! Most women don’t realize it because it’s not a topic of general conversation. Find out more about Corelife Wellness workshops in Oakville, where we bring these topics out into the open for frank and honest discussions about urinary frequency, incontinence and even sexual dysfunction relating to pelvic fitness.
