Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA) is an abdominal wall separation between the rectus abdominis muscles. 66% of expectant mothers have a DRA in the 3rd trimester. 53% continue postpartum, of which 36% remain at 7 weeks. A study by Coldron in 2008 showed that a DRA present at 8 weeks postpartum was still present at 1 year postpartum. Connect PT therapists can help reduce this separation with specific exercises, functional training, manual therapy, and taping.
