Updated: Jul 8, 2022
Feel free to read the quick links below before reading this post:
Now that we know what is Diastasis Recti and the different kinds of Diastasis Recti, let us take a look at the effects it could have on the body.
Constipation may sound like a common problem if the body is lacking fiber intake. Constipation may happen during pregnancy and/or post pregnancy too. Changes in a your hormones may cause this. Having a little one in your body also slows down the passage of stool due to having the intestines squished in your body.
You may experience urinary incontinence where your urine leaks by accident. Although it is more common for older people (especially women), it can happen to those who have Diastasis Recti as well.
Although pelvic pain may be common during and post pregnancy, it may last longer due to Diastasis Recti.
Abdominal muscles work together with the pelvic floor and other core muscle groups to stabilize the spine and pelvis. With Diastasis Recti, both the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor has weakened which causes the lower back pain.
