Welcome to Hello Physio, Singapore's premier health and medical center specializing in sports medicine and physical therapy. Our team of highly skilled professionals is dedicated to providing comprehensive and personalized care to help you overcome various musculoskeletal conditions. In this article, we will focus on diastasis recti, a common condition that affects many individuals.
Understanding Diastasis Recti
Diastasis recti is a condition characterized by the separation of the rectus abdominis muscles, commonly known as the "six-pack" muscles. It usually occurs during pregnancy as the abdominal muscles stretch to accommodate the growing baby. However, it can also affect men and women who have experienced significant weight fluctuations or engage in intense core exercises.
Symptoms and Impact
Individuals with diastasis recti may experience a visible bulge or ridge running vertically along the midline of the abdomen. This separation weakens the abdominal wall, causing core instability, and may lead to other related issues such as lower back pain, poor posture, and reduced functional movement.
At Hello Physio, we offer a range of effective treatment options for diastasis recti. Our team of experienced physical therapists will assess your condition, develop a personalized treatment plan, and guide you through the recovery process.
1. Therapeutic Exercises
Physical therapy plays a crucial role in diastasis recti treatment. Our therapists will design a tailored exercise program to strengthen the weakened abdominal muscles and restore core stability. These exercises will include targeted movements that focus on closing the separation gradually and safely.
2. Manual Therapy
In addition to therapeutic exercises, our skilled physical therapists may utilize manual therapy techniques to further enhance your recovery. This may involve hands-on techniques to release tension, improve tissue mobility, and promote optimal healing.
3. Education and Lifestyle Modifications
Understanding how to manage diastasis recti outside the clinic is essential for long-term success. Our experts will educate you about proper body mechanics, posture correction, and exercises to avoid. Lifestyle modifications, such as maintaining a healthy weight and practicing safe lifting techniques, will also be discussed.
