How do I know if I have a diastasis recti?

By |May 25th, 2021|

Sometimes you can check yourself for diastasis recti but it's best to see a pelvic floor specialist. However, if you have low back pain,  pelvic pain, sacroiliac joint instability, pubic bone pain, collapsed posture, digestive issues, pelvic floor issues, a protruding tummy, an odd-looking belly button, you likely are suffering from functional core weakness and possibly diastasis recti. This is not something you want to just live with or hope goes away. Our treatments can help you regain your core strength and confidence again!

Why have I never heard of this diastasis recti?

By |May 25th, 2021|

Diastasis Recti is a very common but underdiagnosed condition, in fact, one study found that up to 60% of women may experience diastasis recti during pregnancy or postpartum. This is mostly because there has traditionally not been a great treatment plan for the condition. That is no longer the case with our core strengthening rehabilitation and prevention programs. Our programs can effectively treat diastasis recti help eliminate the common pain and instability symptoms associated.

What causes diastasis recti?

By |May 25th, 2021|

Diastasis recti is caused by a repetitive forward force on the connective tissue that runs down the center of the abdominal wall. Usually, this occurs post-pregnancy as the uterus stretches the muscles in the abdomen to accommodate a growing baby. This pressure can also be from repetitive movements including: Chronic constipation Crunches Sit-ups Planks Bracing or bearing down.
