Lasting Relief of Diastasis Recti

Let us help you resolve your diastasis, naturally and without surgery

What is a Diastasis Recti?


A diastasis is a separation between the abdominal muscles that occurs in the third trimester.  For about half of women, this gap doesn't close after the pregnancy.  While it's common, a diastasis is not normal and not something you have to live with!


It can contribute to incontinence, low back pain, painful intercourse, and other issues.  You may also notice a 'mommy pooch' or 'mummy tummy', no matter how much you work out. 

Treatment for Diastasis Recti

Most mothers try online exercise programs or core exercises without success.  These generic programs aren't targeted to your specific case, and don't address the true 'why' of the diastasis.

Our team not only resolves the diastasis, but helps you find the underlying 'why' of what is going on for true, lasting relief.

Pelvic Physical Therapy for a Diastasis

Regardless of whether your diastasis is 1.5 or 4 fingers wide, or how many years it's been there, it can be resolved naturally and without surgery,  Your pelvic PT can find why it hasn't closed, work to resolve the issue and give you a targeted program for real results.  

Many mothers start seeing a major difference in just the first few visits, after years of trying to strengthen their core by themselves.

Our team can also check for other pelvic health issues to make sure you completely recover.  We'd love to work with you to get you back to your normal activities and whatever exercise you choose!

"Very satisfying experience!! I loved going to PelvicSanity,  which helped me a lot after my postpartum....kind, friendly and very knowledgeable!"

"I had been to other PTs, but they did not have the training or experience to help me. I highly recommend giving yourself a chance and allowing PelvicSanity to help you."

"Within just a few PT sessions I started feeling better...Finding PelvicSanity has made a huge impact helping me attain a much lower level of pain than I thought possible."

Above all else, we believe in putting the needs of our patients first.  At PelvicSanity, that means full length, 55-minute treatment sessions that are always one-on-one with a pelvic specialist.  Every person is different, so we do not follow a script or simply teach Kegels; instead we tailor treatment to each individual.  We provide a positive, stress-free environment where you can truly find pelvic sanity.
