What are the non-surgical options for managing Diastasis recti?
Diastasis recti condition. There are a few non-surgical options for managing the Diastasis recti, although their effectiveness may vary depending on the severity of the condition.
One of the most common non-surgical options is physical therapy. A physical therapist can teach specific exercises like pelvic tilts, abdominal bracing such as isometric movements like planks, and Kegels to help strengthen the abdominal muscles and improve their function. Even though these exercises theoretically can not repair the midline gap in Diastasis recti medical condition , they are extremely helpful to overall increase the core muscle strength and stability and decrease the size of the abdominal bulge. In the case you are having severe abdominal pain you may be developing a Diastasis recti or even a hernia condition.
Another non-surgical option is the use of an abdominal binder or support garment. These garments can help to support the abdominal muscles and reduce the strain on the connective tissue and perhaps decrease the progression of the Diastasis recti. They are often recommended for use during physical activity, lifting and straining.
In addition, some alternative therapies such as acupuncture and chiropractic care may be used to help alleviate symptoms associated with Diastasis recti like lower back pain and abnormal posture. However, the effectiveness of these therapies has not been extensively studied.
