Why splint?? How to apply the diastasis rehab splint.

The diastasis rehab splint: is it necessary???
If your diastasis is 3 fingers or more, you will definitely want to wear a splint! This will help approximate the two sides of the rectus abdominus, putting the connective tissue in a better position to heal and make your exercises even more effective and help you to heal and close the gap much faster. The muscles will also be stronger and you will get more out of your exercises if you wear it.

This video will help you know how to put it on correctly and help you problem solve if you have been wearing the splint, but having some trouble with it.
