Abdomen and torso
Your rectus abdominis is a straight abdominal muscle.
If you overload this muscle, it can become tense. Fascia form adhesions, trigger points develop, and give you pain in the area of your abdomen, middle and lower back. Depending on which fibers of the muscle are affected.
It is very important to be able to distinguish abdominal pain from the pain in your intestines, which lies underneath.
That's why I feel the muscle from the sternum down to the pubic bone.
If I feel fascia adhesions or a trigger point, I will try to relieve these tensions with the help of the Swaywaver method (3-dimensional oscillation) through targeted strokes.
Emotional stress diminishes, relief occurs.
Your flexors relax; at the same time I activate the lymphatic system of the abdomen and pelvis.
The two main functions of the muscle are the flexion of the spine - curvature forwards - and the increase of the pressure in the abdomen, which is important when coughing, for example.
In addition, the muscle becomes active before and while you walk in order to stabilize your spine.
The trunk, anatomically also referred to as the torso, is a term for the central body section of the human body. The stomach, back, chest and pelvis therefore form the torso
