It’s never too late to close a diastasis recti (the separation of the rectus abdominis muscle) without surgery! With a whole-body evidence-based approach, PIDR helps you heal your diastasis and rebuild your core strength. We use exercise, movement modifications, manual therapy and education to return your body to its optimal function.
While a diastasis is commonly seen in pregnancy and after childbirth, it can also occur in children as well as women and men of all ages. With a diastasis, you may experience:
- Regular back pain
- Being mistaken for an expecting mom, when you are not
- Bloating with food or beverage intake
- A belly pooch despite being reasonably fit elsewhere
- Urine or gas leaking with daily activities or exercise
- An umbilical hernia
Pregnancy is an ideal time to begin learning about diastasis so that you can keep the separation small during your pregnancy and have the core strength and support you need for the physical demands of pregnancy and delivery.
