How to Engage your Transverse Abdominis

While diastasis recti is a diagnosis, it is also a symptom of something larger.

 

When you have a weak internal corset muscle (known as your transverse abdominis) and are unaware of posture that consistently create forward forceful pressure on the linea alba, it can create a diastasis. 


When the muscles of the abdominal wall are not firmly connected and strong, the body suffers.
