Are any of you familiar with diastasis recti? or split abdominal muscles? I had my 3rd 10 months ago and have a 6 inch gap between the muscles when they are not flexed. This has led to lots of back problems, including spraining my sacrolateral joint in January. I got better and began exercising since then, and lost 27 pounds and am finally down to pre-pregnancy weight. However, the split is affecting my ability to lift, do core exercises, get up and bend down while standing.
Everything online says that the only way to fix is through surgery. I'd like to try everything else possible first. Went to GP and she wasn't even familiar with it. I am not sure who to turn to or what else to try. If anyone has experienced this or has helped someone with this, I'd love to hear about it. Thank you in advance
