Diastasis recti is a separation of the outermost abdominal muscles (rectus
abdominis). It is a condition that has been ignored by medical professionals
because treatment for it has not been taught as part of their medical education.
Side effects of diastasis recti are back and hip pain, abdominal hernias, GI
problems such as bloating and constipation, pelvic floor problems and poor
posture. This condition can put a pregnant woman at risk for a c-section and a
person having abdominal surgery at risk for an incisional hernia. Improper
exercise can make this condition worse! In the webinar, Julie Tupler, RN,
