Diastasis Detective Program

Module 1: Intro

Why fixing abdominal separation needs a broader approach

WHY FIXING DIASTASIS RECTI IS A WHOLE-BODY APPROACH

When fixing diastasis recti, we need to move away from spot-reducing.

It’s essential that we go south of the pubis and north of the rib cage in our efforts to fully and correctly rehabilitate someone with abdominal separation.

You’ve already learned that:

  • there are a number of factors that attribute to diastasis recti
  • diastasis recti doesn’t just suddenly happen – it occurs gradually, over time
  • it’s not all about the abdominals – there are other elements at play
  • being pregnant can attribute, but pregnancy is not the only root cause
  • breathing optimally is the first step in the equation
  • diastasis recti is totally fixable without surgery
