I am a 31 year old woman in good health. 11 weeks ago, I gave birth through C-section, after a tough pregnancy with complete bed rest for seven months. Walk to the bathroom were the only exercise I got. After birth, I noticed that I was left with diastasis recti of about 2.5 cm width. It is mainly around the belly button around 5 to 6 cm in length. I also get that ridge-like protrusion when I contract the abdominals. I started a kinesiotherapy program to strengthen the core and back muscles, specifically for diastasis. I will go three times a week for a 45 minutes session each time. Can physiotherapy heal (close) my diastasis? And if so, then how long does it usually take to see the results? I am willing to keep with the program for as long as it takes, but I also want to know if I should be optimistic about regaining my pre-pregnancy shape. Thank you.
