Diastasis Recti: A Solution

Case Study Full Name: Diastasis Recti: A Solution By: Myrna Parmentier , PT, CKTP   Introduction: A possible complication to pregnancy, delivery, and post-partum recovery is the condition known as diastasis recti. This is the separation of the connective tissue of the midline anterior trunk into which the rectus abdominus muscle attaches, can be a mild annyoyance or a major disability. This condition can impair the ability to take a deep breath, do tasks of daily living, sleep comfortably, or continue exercising. The use of kinesiotape in a new technique of application has shown to provide relief from discomfort, enable deep breathing and allow the pregnant woman to do some exercise and ADL's without as much difficulty. It can also stabilize the extent of the diastasis and possibly prevent any further separation while patient strengthens the abdominal muscles. This can reduce back pain and decrease the length of labor. Patients who have not been started on the exercises early on in their pregnancy need some assistance in improving a prolonged abdominal contracture with pressure to further the delivery process.

Instead of compressing tissue to squeeze out fluids, kinesiology tape gently lifts the skin, enhancing drainage through the lymphatic system. Made from KT Tape cotton with a light adhesive, applications can be worn for several days, providing therapeutic benefits the entire time they are worn.

KT Tape Edema Strips are 2" wide by 18" long - the longest edema strips available. Each strip has a 2" anchor (the end with the KT Tape logo) and five 16" tails.
