What is Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA)?

Implications of DRA

• Abdominal wall functions; posture, trunk and pelvic stability, respiration, trunk movement, and support of abdominal viscera (stomach, intestine, liver and biliary system, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, ureters, and suprarenal glands).
• DRA can weaken abdominal muscles resulting in altered trunk mechanics, impaired pelvic stability and changed posture
