At MPT&Rehab we also treat many post-partum patients with Diastasis Recti. Diastasis Recti is a condition many women face post-partum and usually completely ignore. This condition very rarely will cause pain or discomfort.
Diastasis Recti even though not directly causing discomfort is the leading cause of pelvic and low back pain for many patients- due to the lack of proper core function and stability.
Our physical therapy together provide a very specific, individualized and comprehensive approach which will determine the exact course of treatment for your core instability.
Our physical therapy center, the doctor will begin with a comprehensive examination- which will address the onset, cause, duration, severity, and establish the plan to help correct the dysfunction.
At MPT&Rehab we have extensive experience treating women with Diastasis Recti. Based on a functional evaluation we create an individual treatment plan. Treatment will be a combination of manual therapy, and physical therapy exercises that will help restore function to the abdominal wall muscles. We use our expertise in manual medicine and rehabilitation to help activate deep abdominal muscles and help restore correct function by challenging muscles and training them cortically.
