What is Diastasis Recti?


Although the term Diastasis Recti is known by most women who have had children, it is also a condition that can affect men who are over weight. This condition can cause weakness and separation of the abdominal muscles due to pressure from the deeper core muscles in the mid section. There are exercises that you can do to help prevent this condition but the most important thing is to know what to stay away from for women who are pregnant or for those who are looking to correct the condition.
