Diastasis Recti|HER Body PT

Diastasis Recti is quite common both during and after pregnancy.  Men and children can be diagnosed with this as well.

In and of itself, this is not a "dangerous" issue, but can result in a weakened core which then puts women at risk for additional injury.  Abdominal muscles can become stretched and thinned which compromises the integrity of the core system.  Back pain is common with this issue along with other problems such as urinary incontinence and prolapse.   

Treatment for Diastasis Recti can include pressure management techniques, behavioral modifications, strengthening, mobility and breath work as well as neuromuscular retraining.  Hands on/manual therapy can help women learn to engage the abdominal wall correctly.

Healing these tissues can take time and patient's are encouraged to remain compliant with a home program.  Muscles need to be overloaded in order to strengthen and Dr. Moses can help you establish a program that fits your needs.
