A diastasis, also called a Rectus Diastasis, is a phenomenon in which the space between the left and right straight abdominal muscle is too large. This can lead to insufficient force, which can lead to compensation. As a result, you can experience pain around the navel, have lower back or pelvic complaints, experience pelvic floor complaints such as urinary incontinence and experience loss of strength in the muscle corset.
During an intake and during the examination of the diastasis, it is determined how large the diastasis is and which factors play a role in its development. The treatment is adjusted accordingly. The treatment will be aimed at counseling (preventing an increase in diastasis, posture advice, how to absorb or prevent abdominal pressure, exercise advice), exercise therapy, breathing exercises and various tape techniques to support the abdomen.
