IS DIASTASIS RECTI A HERNIA?
While a diastasis recti is not a hernia, it presents itself in a way very similar to a hernia and is often misdiagnosed as one. It can also become a hernia if the connective tissue tears away from the muscle. The umbilical hernia is a side effect of diastasis recti. Healing the weakened connective tissue to close a diastasis provides more support for the navel, which is why your navel will go from an outie to an innie when you do the Tupler Technique® program. If you surgically repair the umbilical hernia without making your diastasis smaller, this hernia most likely will reoccur.
