What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti is a condition characterized by the separation of the abdominal muscles, specifically the rectus abdominis muscles, which run vertically down the midline of the abdomen. Both men and women can develop diastasis recti, although it is more commonly associated with pregnancy and childbirth in women.

How can we help you if you have diastasis recti?
  • Comprehensive Assessment:

        – Determine the extent (width and depth) of separation

        – Evaluate the integrity and function of the abdominal muscles

        – Discuss any associated symptoms. 

  • Education: Information sharing about causes, contribution factors, exercises, and movements that can promote healing / exacerbate the condition 
  • Core stabilization: to strengthen the abdominal muscles and improve core control. 
  • Posture and body mechanics: advise on how to engage their core muscles during daily activities;
  • Breathing techniques: to help improve core activation and support the healing process;
  • Manual therapy: soft tissue mobilization or myofascial release may be used;
  • Progression of exercises: incorporating resistance training, stability exercises, or functional movements.
