These guidelines are free to download as a pdf in our free resources section. However many people like to have a printed book of the guidelines that is durable and easily to use. After many requests we decided to make this possible. This gloss book offers the perfect addition to workplace libraries, an ideal gift option for new mums/mums-to-be or a suitable format for workshops and educational events where you need a resource format that will stand the test of time and will not be impacted by the wear and tear of use.
This e-book was created to provide answers to the many questions that those living with and assisting the management of diastasis rectus abdominis often ask. Unfortunately there is an abundance of conflicting evidence in the public domain about diastasis and therefore it is the aim of this resource to provide the most up to date evidence-based information and guidance written by an Advanced Phystiotherapist with years of experience managing and educating about abdominal separation.
Proposed guidelines for health professionals managing this population. Musculoskeletal pain, stress urinary incontinence, and abdominal separation are prevalent conditions among postpartum runners (Blyholder et at 2016). Awareness and understanding for the importance of optimal postnatal recovery in the prevention and management of these "common but not normal" conditions is increasing.
This proposed guideline has been created by the dedicated work of Grainne Donnelly (ABSOLUTE.PHYSIO) Tom Goom (AKA the Running Phsyio) and Emma Brockwell (AKA Physiomum UK).
Return to running is not advisable prior to 3 months postnatal or beyond this if any symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction are identified prior to, or after attempting, return to running.
We therefore recommend that a low impact exercise timeline is followed within the first 3 months of the postnatal period, followed by a return to running between 3-6 months postnatal, at the earliest.
