What is Diastasis Recti?
The Abdominals Recti your main muscles on your belly can be harmed in many cases, most commonly during pregnancy. The muscles separate vertically in the line of the belly button so the growing foetus will have enough room. In a lot of cases the linea alba, the tissue between the abs injures and will not be able to pull the muscles back to their original place after the pregnancy. It is not only an aesthetical issue but also if they are separated the muscles cannot fulfil their function, can make our life very difficult, and can cause serious ailments (e.g. hernia, incontinence of urine..)
If you learn how to use the muscles properly and do the appropriate exercises, the abdominal muscles are able to get strong and the gap between the muscles can be reduced to minimal.
