9780989653961: Diastasis Recti: The Whole Body Solution to Abdominal Weakness and Separation

Diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles, is a symptom of a whole-body problem.

Your abdominal muscles bend, twist, and support the spine. They contract and release to help you breathe, cough, talk, and sing. They stretch to accommodate pregnancy, haul your lower body towards your upper, and protect your abdominal organs. They should not be splitting down the middle.

In Diastasis Recti: The Whole Body Solution to Abdominal Weakness and Separation, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains the larger picture when it comes to DR including body alignment; frequency of movement; the effects of all-day forces, like intra-abdominal pressure; and why a few exercises simply aren't enough for long-term success. You need to learn a new way to move for an improved set of core muscles.

Because the abdominals are connected directly and indirectly to every other part of the body, Diastasis Recti lays out a whole-body corrective program to address the factors that overloaded the core in the first place.

With over 30 exercises and habit modifications, this book is for any man or woman experiencing abdominal separation or weakness and wanting to improve both the appearance and the function of their abdomen.

About the Author:

With radical, science-based health directives, Katy is taking the health-and-wellness world by storm with her bold exercise is not movement platform. A biomechanist by training and a problem-solver at heart, she has helped thousands reduce chronic pain, increase bone density, and improve metabolic health through movement and proper alignment.

In addition to hosting her podcast KatySays (one of Greatist's Best Health and Fitness Podcasts of All Time ) and writing for her award-winning blog KatySays.com, she is a regular source for national health publications like Prevention and Men s Health, and is a sought after guest on radio, television pod-casted talk shows and news segments. Creator of the Aligned and WellTM DVD series, Katy's groundbreaking work in pelvic floor restoration has made her particularly popular with midwives, OBGYNs, and others concerned with pelvic mobility, strength, and health.

Review:



Using the same friendly approach that makes her anatomy and movement lessons so easy to follow, Bowman provides tactics that are understandable and clearly described. The use of photography is also helpful, with the author demonstrating each move in addition to providing step-by-step instructions.
Although Bowman's main purpose is education, what she really brings is empowerment. Encouraging people to know their own bodies, and then pursue solutions that make them healthier and happier, is a powerful approach to wellness.
By making the material understandable, approachable, and achievable, Bowman offers an outstanding and necessary guide to diastasis recti and many other abdomen-related issues. Everyone can benefit from these insights and improve their health in an empowered and proactive way.
--Foreword Reviews, reviewed by Elizabeth Millard, May 27, 2016 forewordreviews.com/reviews/diastasis-recti/

Katy's book presents a global approach to healing after DR. For example, she stresses the role of the movements and postural habits of the pelvis and ribcage. This discussion struck me as especiallyimportant for people who do CrossFit or weightlifting, with repetitivemovements like overhead presses and heavy squats. But don't expect tofind tables full of Do's and Don't's in Katy's book. Her approach isalso highly individual and takes into account the many variables thatexist from person to person...Diastasis recti is a whole-body issue that requires a whole-body approach. It's refreshing to find a resource that acknowledges that need and provides concrete steps to achieve it.
