Conservative management of Diastasis Recti Abdominis – Level 1


This course will give participants an overview of the most up to date research evidence, inclusive of recent RCTs and practice-based research, on the topic of diastasis rectus abdominis during pregnancy, focusing of the connection between pelvic floor muscle and linea alba function.  The presenters will draw on a broad literature base that includes breathing mechanics, abdominals and pelvic floor muscle within the context of the manometric pressure system, and address pregnancy-related changes.  Further, we will discuss what constitute structural and functional impairment to the linea alba during pregnancy, and what would benefit from conservative management.  An updated evidenced-based approach for conservative management of DRA during pregnancy will be described and practiced.


  1. Understand the anatomy of the linea alba and the relationship between the LA and the other structures of the abdominal manometric system, particularly the pelvic floor muscles.
  2. Understand pregnancy-related musculoskeletal tissue changes, how it affects the linea alba and its biomechanics with the surrounding structures.
  3. Identify the epidemiology of DRA relative to the different phases of pregnancy
  4. Identify scientific update on evidence (both evidence-based and practice-based inquiry) pertaining to various aspects of DRA during pregnancy, and differentiate those that require intervention and those that do not.
  5. Learn to use different assessment methods of DRA during pregnancy (palpation, caliper and ultrasound)
  6. Learn and practice various tools and interventions that are available to manage a dysfunctional DRA during pregnancy.
