How It Works
We have a thriving community of online clients from all over the world in our private member’s forum. You can use this to ask our therapists questions, get encouragement, or receive additional instruction. You are not on your own during this journey! And we don’t revoke access to the forum when your program ends – you can continue to ask questions as you continue your core strong journey.
We also offer eSessions (virtual appointments) if you need more 1-on-1 instruction.
We recognize that it can be hard to understand exactly how this online rehab thing works. Rest assured, our programs are based on research and functional anatomy. Each of our online programs is a direct reflection of what we do with clients in our clinic in Camas, WA. Because we spend so much time on education in how the body was designed to function, it is easy to translate this into a guided online program. Each week you have educational videos, instructional videos, exercise cards, charts, assessments, and a rehab plan. You’ll watch the videos, print your handouts, and then apply what you’ve learned throughout the week. We have even more information on how online rehab works here.
We also have extensive information on what to expect for each specific program. Find the program you are looking for in our store and then click “View Sample Videos and More” to learn about what that program offers.
The Tummy Team programs were developed by physical therapist Kelly Dean, who personally healed her core with this approach. It is based on the neuromuscular retraining of the core. The biggest difference we hear from clients is that this program is simple to apply because the “exercises” are made for real life. Rather than a regimented set of exercises and protocols, our programs support the optimal function of the whole body and were designed for use in real life scenarios like picking up kids, sitting at a desk, mowing the lawn, etc. Learn more about our approach here.
Splinting is a valuable part of the rehab process, but it is not the whole program. It is possible to rehabilitate your core without a splint; however, we have seen many benefits of splinting alongside our rehab program. It can speed up the healing of diastasis recti, it provides sensory feedback to help you understand what your core muscles should feel like, it increases blood flow to the damaged tissue, and ultimately reinforces what we teach in our core rehabilitation program.
