How We Treat a Core Dysfunction at Back in Motion Physical Therapy & Performance?

Diastasis recti typically develop later in a woman's pregnancy or during/after giving birth. It's important to note that the muscles affected by diastasis recti can remain separated for up to one year postpartum. However, with therapeutic interventions, healing can occur in a matter of weeks for some women.

Several factors can increase the risk of developing diastasis recti during or after pregnancy, including:

  • Being over the age of 35

  • Carrying multiple babies during pregnancy

  • Previous childbirth experience

  • Giving birth to a baby with a high birth weight

  • Leading a sedentary lifestyle before pregnancy

  • Engaging in fitness routines involving crunches, sit-ups, or v-sits

  • Chronic slouched posture and rounded shoulders
