Fitting yourself for an abdominal rehab splint

Splinting can be an essential part of healing and restoring your core muscles. However, most people don't realize that abdominal splinting alone will not rehabilitate your core. In some cases, the incorrect and/or long-term use of a splint can make matters worse. The splint is designed to be a temporary transverse muscle during the process of rehabilitation so that you can wean from the splint and ultimately have a strong, rehabilitated core. Splinting is always recommended as a part of a functional rehab program. Splinting alone is not effective. Kelly Dean, MPT and Founder of The Tummy Team goes into more detail on this topic in this video.
