WHAT IS ABDOMINAL SEPARATION (DIASTASIS RECTI)?
Diastasis recti is a condition where the rectus abdominis muscles tear away from the connective tissue, separating it from the linea alba.
The linea alba is a cord of collagen that goes from the base of the xyphoid process (sternum) all the way down to the pubic bone (pubic symphysis).
