Why Should I Check Myself for a Diastasis If I have an Protruding Belly Button?

Because it’s important to know how far apart your muscles have separated as well as  the condition of your weakened connective tissue. The larger it is and the weaker your connective tissue,  the more at risk you are for the many side effects diastasis such as include back pain, umbilical hernia, bloating after eating, constipation, and poor posture just a few to name.

The outermost muscles (called rectus abdominis) runs vertically down the abdomen and connects the front of the pelvis to the back. When this muscle stretches too far, it can create a bulge in the abdomen around the belly button area, where you may have an Outie Belly Button which may be a sign of an Umbilical Hernia.

This separation usually occurs during pregnancy, but can also happen due to heavy lifting or a consequence of being overweight. In some cases, it may be caused by a hernia of the abdominal wall which pushes up on your stomach and causes your belly button to protrude outwards.

 These side effects only get worse with age and improper exercise!
