Diastasis Safe Training

 

Until a DR is closed or becomes “functional”, restricted activities include front loaded positions such as plank, push up, downward dog, cat & cow, etc. A DR is functional when the connective tissue (CT) is able to generate enough tension to support the abdominal wall when the core is engaged, despite a separation between the recti. With displaced recti unable to support the weight of the internal organs, they press on the already weakened CT which can exacerbate a DR and undermine the work to close the separation. These exercises can be reintroduced post core rehab.

 

Remember Always engage the core with exertion. An abdominal splint or binder is always effective to support a weakened core during exercise.

 

I will work with you to determine which exersizes should be done at different times. We will modify your routine to move along with your progession of strength. I will ensure you are using the correct form, becausew incorrect form could actually worsen your condition. I will help you move into more advanced exersiezes when the time is right.
