Diastasis Recti Physical Therapy
In Atlanta, GA

Diastasis recti (you may know it as ab separation) happens when the space between the "six-pack" muscles on the front of your stomach gets wider.

It can cause physical changes that may put a damper on your daily life—and your everyday confidence.

With our always individualized, thoughtfully designed plans of care, our team at Functionize Health & Physical Therapy can help you heal your ab separation, so you can move forward in wellness and feel like yourself again. Get in touch with us now to discover diastasis recti physical therapy in Atlanta, GA for yourself.

A couple quick details about diastasis:

  • Ab separation is super common in pregnant and postpartum women, whose bodies go through major physical and hormonal changes as they literally GROW HUMANS. (We'll never not be impressed about that.) In fact, virtually all pregnant people experience ab separation to some degree. Some of us just need a little extra help healing those stretched out tissues after giving birth.

  • Diastasis recti can happen in people who've never been pregnant, too, including men. Anything that causes increased pressure in the abdomen can make the tissues on the front of the belly stretch out.

  • Ab separation looks and feels different in different people, but many folks notice things like back pain, leaking urine while sneezing or coughing, constipation, pain during intimacy, altered posture, and a bulging or dome-like appearance on their stomach.

Ab separation is NOT:

  • Something to be ashamed or embarrassed about

  • Something you "just have to learn to live with"

  • Something that can only be "fixed" with surgery

  • Something that will forever keep you from the activities you love—not if there's anything we can do about it!

At Funtionize, we help people with diastasis recti heal their core and reclaim their wellness. We'd love to help you too.

We're here to help you heal, inside and out. At Functionize, that process begins by helping you get clear about what you want to achieve, and giving you the permission (if you're looking for it!) to envision your body at its best...whatever that looks and feels like to YOU.
