Details

One of the biggest issues with diastasis recti is that the appearance of it differs from person to person. Quite often a diastasis recti goes unnoticed, without painful symptoms, or even worse, is seen as a personal flaw, especially with women postpartum.

Rectus abdominis separation can lead to a stomach bulge (aka stomach pooch), pelvic floor issues, unnatural posture, and stomach and back pain. The symptoms of diastasis recti include but are not limited to:



  • Abdominal Bulge
  • Abdominal Gaping
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Sensation of Bloatedness without Bloat
  • Incontinence
  • Poor Posture
  • Constipation & Bloat
  • Doming or invagination of the linea alba when performing crunches or other traditional ab exercises
  • Difficulty with everyday activities due to a lack of core function


Unless you have a low body fat percentage or have an overly toned core with a visible 6-pack, it is very hard to diagnose a diastasis recti on appearance alone. The linea alba lies beneath the fat layer of your abdomen, so it cannot be seen. Many people have a diastasis recti for years before learning they have it.
