How can pelvic floor PT help with managing symptoms of diastasis recti?
Pelvic floor therapy aims to address the weaknesses within the pelvic floor, core and hip muscles. The goal of pelvic floor therapy is to address core muscle weakness and retrain your body to activate the deepest muscles of your abdominal wall.
Pelvic floor therapists provide hand-on manual treatments, individualized exercises and discuss lifestyle modifications in order to reduce abdominal pressure that is contributing to your diastasis recti. The key with DRA is to address all of the factors that are contributing to it, including core weakness, posture and joint mobility restrictions.
