WHAT PROBLEMS DOES DIASTASIS RECTI CAUSE?
The function of the outermost abdominal muscles (rectus abdominis) is to support your back and organs. When the muscles separate, and the connective tissue between the separated muscles stretches sideways and becomes the support system so the muscles are not doing their job anymore.
Side effects may include back and hip pain, umbilical hernia, GI issues such as bloating after eating and constipation, poor posture, pelvic floor issues.
A diastasis recti can put a pregnant woman at risk for a C-section and a patient having abdominal surgery at risk for an incision hernia where the stiches come undone after having abdominal surgery.
The abdominal muscles can only do their job when they are close together.
