What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA) in simple terms is a midline separation between your right and left abdominal wall muscles that can give an appearance of a “pooch” on your belly.

Abdominal gap is identified through a separation wider than 2.7cm between the rectus abdominis muscles. It appears like a ridge running down the middle of the belly area and is common amongst women with multiple pregnancy.

The common occurrence begins in the third trimester of pregnancy, however the condition might continue for some after child birth.

Come in for a body assessment. Our experienced doctors and aestheticians are always ready to help achieve your body goals.


What causes Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis Recti Symptoms

Diastasis Recti (DR) is commonly identified through a stomach bulge and a ridge in the middle of your belly. The ridge can extend from the middle of belly to the pubic bone area.  Most patients suffering from DR will also suffer from compromised posture and back pain.

This breakdown of the abdominal muscle can cause a range of problems such as weakness in the abdominal wall, hernia, cosmetic defects and vaginal abstinence.  A study of Spitznagle et al found that 66% of patients with diastastic recti abdominis were diagnoses of stress urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence and support pelvic floor dysfunction (SPFD).

You can self assess for abdominal gap through self-test. Lie flat on the floor with knees bent and feet on the floor. Place your fingers at your navel with one hand on your belly. Press your fingertips gently down to a mini-crunch-like place with the shoulders on the ground. Feel if there’s a two or three finger wide or greater separation of your rectum abdominal muscles.

What is the cause of Diastasis Recti?

how does diastasis recti happen?

How does Diastasis Recti happens?

In most pregnancies, abdominal muscle separation will occur, and in most cases, the separation can settle on its own. Diastasis Recti, on the other hand, happens when the abdominal muscles remain apart for an extended period of time.

Abdominal gap affects 30% of new mothers and is more common in women who have had several children or who have had heavier babies/twins.

This is attributed to the fact that having a larger stomach allows the connective tissues between your abdominal muscles to expand out further. Your connective tissues get thinner as they are spread further. This makes it more difficult for them to recover.
