Impact of Exercise on Diastasis Rectus Abdominus

The aim with this research project is to evaluate the success of diastasis recti closure after a 4-week group exercise class that includes: strengthening of each abdominal muscle group, hip strengthening and stabilization, and pelvic floor activation and cueing during exercises. Success will be evaluated by measuring width and depth of linea alba laxity before and after completion of the 4 sessions as well as other outcome measures such as lumbopelvic pain, pain with intercourse, and incontinence. Intervention will be compared to a control group that participates in an exercise program geared toward general health and wellness.
