A diastasis recti is a separation of your outermost abdominal muscles. The job of these muscles (called rectus abdominis), is to support your back and your organs.
Continuous stretching of, and intra-abdominal force and pressure on, this connective tissue that joins your outermost abdominal muscles.
Common causes of intra-abdominal force and pressure on connective tissue:
Separated muscles are weak muscles. Separated muscles cannot do their job of supporting your back and organs. To achieve a strong core, your muscles must be close together.
When the muscles separate, the connective tissue (linea alba) joining these muscles stretches sideways. This sideways stretching of the connective tissue causes it to become thinner and weaker. Now, this weak, thin connective tissue is ineffectively supporting your back and organs, instead of the muscles that should be if they were close together.
A diastasis can be closed on anyone at any time.
