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:
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.

Every belly should be checked for a diastasis! During your free belly check we will determine the width of the diastasis and the health of the connective tissue. We will also use this time to answer your questions and help you decide which diastasis rehab program is right for you.
In this 90-minute appointment you will learn concepts, exercises and functional movements to begin healing your diastasis at home. Follow-up sessions are recommended every three weeks to check your progress and keep you moving forward until the diastasis recti is healed.
In this 45-minute session we will re-check your diastasis, teach progressions and discuss next steps. You can expect to see measurable results in just 3 weeks of your diastasis rehab program.
This session is for individuals who need kinesio tape application to approximate the recti. Taping is a definitive rehabilitative technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Latex-free and wearable for days at a time; safe for all populations; waterproof.
A weak core can exist even without a diastasis recti. These 45-minute sessions will teach you exercises that you can do at home to strengthen your core and tone your abdominals. Strength, movement and postural assessments are used to create a series of exercises and movement modifications that will result in quick and measurable change.
Pregnancy is one of the most important times to strengthen your core! By focusing on your core and pelvic floor now you can enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy while learning tools for labor, delivery and postpartum healing. These 45-minute sessions will include exercises you can do at home to help you learn how to both strengthen and relax the abdominals and pelvic floor.
