Are tight hip flexors stopping your Diastasis Recto from repairing?

Tight hip flexors are the nemesis of most things that hurt in our body. From neck pain, jaw tightness, back pain, pelvic floor issues, hip pain and of course your Diastasis Recti not healing.

The hip flexors actually consist of two muscles: the Iliacus and the Psoas Major. Together, they are known as the Iliopsoas.

Overdeveloped and tight hip flexors can contribute to lower back pain, poor posture and other aliments by causing the pelvis to tilt forward.

Hip flexors play a huge role in Diastasis Recti healing because of the pulling it does on the abdominal wall.

Below I have made a video of a few good hip flexor stretches that you can do to help release your hip flexors.
