Updated: Aug 18, 2019

Help for individuals who have Diastasis Recti

Diastasis recti is common in women who deliver a high birth weight baby, or have had multiple pregnancies. It's usually most noticeable right after delivery. It also occurs in middle aged and older men with abdominal obesity. It can also be the result of injuries to the abdomen or due to conditions in which the abdominal wall is overstretched due to distention (enlargement).

Most notable is a wide dip in the midline of the abdominal muscles when contracting the muscles. Another sign may be a bulge in the middle of the belly. It might be noticeable only when the abdominal muscles are tense, such as during coughing. Treatment includes physical therapy. In rare cases, cosmetic surgery may be done to reduce the bulge. There is help with Frequency Specific Microcurrent to help speed up the healing process.
