Diastasis Recti In Women

Women can suffer from diastasis recti in the postpartum stage, years after having children or without ever having a pregnancy at all.

Diastasis Recti (while common with prenatal and postpartum women) is not exclusively a pregnancy issue, it is a Functional Core Weakness issue.

Functional Core Weakness (FCW)

The inability of the muscles of the core to effectively function and support the body for everyday physical demands without pain or dysfunction.

Diastasis Recti and Functional Core Weakness can happen after the stretching of the muscles during pregnancy, or from neglect of the internal postural muscles of your core or from poor fitness choices or abdominal trauma.

Regardless of how you developed this condition, or how long you have been suffering, we can help you heal and rebuild the strength you truly need in your core muscles.
