Diastasis recti

Hi,

I am looking for informations about treatment used to fix this condition. I have a friend who has this problem and got the umbilical hernia from it. She got it fix through surgery but it came back.

In my case, after the birth I did have a bit of space enough to be very paintful for months when doing exercices. Now apparently you can used a string to bring back the muscles together (with exercice as well)



If someone did try this? I would appreciate some feedback.

This isn't about the Diastasis but it is still in the same subject:

Here is something else used straight after the birth to bring the belly and organs into place faster.



Any experience with this one?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Diastasis recti

My wife has DR since the birth of our twins. She has heard good things about the MuTu exercises and they seem really good. Not sure yet if it is helping (she hasn't done them much yet) but I will let you know! It's an exercise program and you pay once online and have unlimited access to the program.

Re: Diastasis recti

I have quite a bad case of diastasis recti (I have 3 kids).

Health-wise it's not a problem. The issue is more aesthetic for me. My tummy can't be really flat because of it, and all traditional abs exercises like crunches only widen the gap.

I'd be happy to hear of a remedy other than surgery!

Re: Diastasis recti

Unfortunately, I have done the MuTu program, it has helped to lower the gap from 4 to 2 fingers, but still the tummy is still very much there. So any other tips and tricks (other than surgery) are more than welcome. I heard that going to an osteopath or chiropractor might help, so I will try that as well. Let's see...
