DIASTASIS RECTI ABDOMINIS

 

What is it?

  • A separation of the linea alba of the rectus abdominis muscle.

 

Why does it happen?

  • Due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, as the baby grows inside your uterus, pressure develops and stretches out the deep transverse abdominis muscle and the connective tissue.
  • Due to intra abdominal pressure from increased weight gain, postural abnormalities, tightness in muscles and other forces on the connective tissue.
  • As a result of this pressure, the weakened connective tissue (linea alba) running down the center of the outermost muscle (rectus abdominis) causes the 2 sides to separate.

HOW DO I KNOW I HAVE A DRA?

  • A protruding belly

  • Palpable ridge of either side of the separation

  • A bulging or doming from the internal structures pushing through the separation

  • Back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction and continence issues can occur
