Why is Diastasis Recti recovery so important?

During pregnancy, the hormones produced by a woman’s body cause the abdominal muscles and bones to become soft, allowing more space to accommodate the fetus. During pregnancy and childbirth, the uterus expands and stretches the rectus abdominis muscle, causing postpartum problems such as separation of the rectus abdominis muscle and displacement of internal organs. In the absence of care, there is a high risk of incontinence, uterine prolapse, and vaginal laxity. We use a combination of traditional and modern methods to help postpartum mothers return to repair damaged rectus abdominis muscles and return to a healthy body.

What is a separation of the rectus abdominis muscle?

During pregnancy, the growing uterus stretches the muscles in the abdomen. This can cause the two large parallel bands of muscles that meet in the middle of the abdomen (rectus muscles) to become separated by an abnormal distance — a condition called Diastasis Recti or Diastasis Recti abdominis.

There are many causes of Diastasis Recti, such as

These are all important factors that can lead to Diastasis Recti during late pregnancy and after delivery. Diastasis Recti is often times accompanied by internal organ prolapse, which can lead to symptoms such as nausea and vomiting or indigestion and even lead to pressure on the bladder, insufficient abdominal pressure and leakage of urine or constipation. It can easily cause back pain for new moms.

How to self-test for Diastasis Recti?

Lie on your back with both legs bent. Expose your abdomen, place your left hand behind your head, and probe your right index and middle fingers vertically into your abdomen with body relaxed. Then lift the upper body up and feel when the abdominal muscles on both sides squeeze the fingers towards the middle. If you don’t feel the squeeze then move the fingers to the sides until you find the tense muscles.

What are the risks of Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis Recti may cause the middle of the abdomen to bulge out and the muscles on either side to separate. This condition only becomes apparent when there is tension in the abdominal muscles, such as when you transition from lying down to sitting up. Diastasis Recti can weaken the abdominal muscles, causing back pain and making it difficult for the patient to lift objects or perform other daily activities.

When is Diastasis Recti Recovery needed?
When the gap between the symphysis pubis exceeds 10mm

When the gap between the pubic bones exceeds 10mm, it is medically defined as a separation of the pubic symphysis. At this time, new moms will experience uncomfortable reactions, such as pain in the crotch when moving, the pelvis cannot bear the pressure, the lower limbs having difficulty moving, and walking is affected. If this happens after delivery, please consult a doctor promptly and receive the necessary treatments following the doctor’s diagnosis.
