I am continuously thinking about new ways to heal connective tissue, I want to share with you an exciting new treatment that combines the Tupler Technique® Program with a Regenerative Platelet Procedure to help strengthen the linea alba. So please register for my Everybelly® Seminar on Monday, December 5th from 2 to 5 pm and learn about the Tupler Technique® and this new procedure. Here is the link for more information: https://diastasisrehab.com/shop/services/31-everybelly-seminar.html
Register before November 30th and bring a guest at no extra cost.
I joined forces with Dr. Patel, who is an Osteopathic Doctor (DO) and a regenerative medicine physician focusing on the musculoskeletal system. As a double board-certified sports medicine physiatrist, he is fellowship-trained in pain management and treats back pain patients on a daily basis. He is a big believer in the importance of strong core muscles. He realized, however, that patients with diastasis recti often have difficulty strengthening their core, and (luckily for me) that is how he came across the Tupler Technique®. So, we decided to combine the Tupler Technique® with the Regenerative Platelet Procedure.
What is this Regenerative Platelet Procedure? Platelets are found in your blood and are responsible for forming a clot when you cut yourself. These platelets contain growth factors that are able to induce healing. Using custom processing of your blood, a concentration of platelets (PRP or platelet rich plasma) and growth factors (PL or platelet lysate) are created. With the amazing success of using this procedure on other parts of the body (shoulders, knees and spine), we felt that injecting these platelet solutions along the linea alba would speed up the healing process of the connective tissue. Because the “condition” of the connective tissue determines the length of time it will take to heal, we were optimistic that adding this procedure to my program would give really weak connective tissue a “healing boost” and would be instrumental in closing a diastasis much faster.
As it turns out, our theory was correct! We saw results in six weeks that were much better than I normally see with clients just doing the
Tupler Technique® alone. Using ultrasound, we observed that the connective tissue did continuously get thicker over 18 weeks.
We started our project with eight women in May, 2016 and completed it in September, 2016. This injection of the platelets into the linea alba was done in Week 4 of my program after clients had developed transverse strength and awareness. We took an ultrasound of the connective tissue in Weeks 1, 3, 6 and then again in Week 18 of the program.
All of our participants were thrilled with the results. Since it was the first time this procedure had ever been done on the linea alba, Dr. Patel and I are working towards fine tuning this procedure to make it even better! We are in the process of writing this project up so we can present it at a Regenexx Conference.
Anxious to bring this procedure to the New York area for my clients, I am inviting Dr. Michael Amoroso to talk about this platelet procedure. He will be working with patients in week 4 of the Tupler Technique® Program and also with my clients who have completed the program but could use a boost to their connective tissue to finish closing it.
Dr. Amoroso is a Regenexx Network Physician who currently treats regenerative orthopedic patients at his office. He is one of fewer than 35 physicians chosen nationally to join an elite group of physician trained using the Regenexx method to process super concentrated platelets, adipose tissue and bone marrow stem cells to treat sports related and other common orthopedic conditions, degenerative disc disease, sciatica and other nerve disorders without surgery. He is certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and the American Board of Pain Medicine. He is a member of the International Orthopedic Foundation, the American Association of Orthopedic medicine, the Spine Intervention Society and the American Society on Interventional Pain Physicians.
Lastly, I have updated my statistics on the Tupler Technique® with 372 clients and 1000 observations that I felt would be of interest to you. Here is the link to the summary page: https://diastasisrehab.com/statistics-summary.php
Look forward to meeting with you and supporting you in closing your diastasis.
