Treatment of Abdominal Separation or Diastasis Recti

Reading time: 1 min

Diastasis is not only an aesthetic problem, with its flaccid, drooping stomach, but lumps can also appear, due to the abdominal wall being unable to hold in the viscera, causing an outward protrusion or bulge. It can also be a functional problem, as it can be related to pelvic floor dysfunctions (urinary incontinence, prolapses and pelvic pain).

The approach to diastasis recti is either conservative - with exercises guided by a specialist physiotherapist - or surgical; the latter being considered only if there are simultaneous hernias in the midline and the separation is sufficiently wide to cause a functional problem.
