Course Summary

This one day course will take you through:

      • A practical look at the current thinking around diastasis

      • The anatomy involved

      • The use of ultrasound to see these things in action

      • Practical implementation of the principles for the assessment and management for people with diastasis

    Course Description:

    Have you noticed just how HOT diastasis is right now?! Everyone has a program or course or book to sell about it…including me! The problem is that people managing Diastasis Rectus Abdominis (DRA) are confused because there are so many mixed messages floating around out there.

    I have found that taking a step back and focusing on the key principles of assessment and management allows us to see the “problem” of DRA differently. By challenging the assumptions which help form our Beliefs, Attitudes, Meaning, and Story (BAMS), we are able to see how these BAMS affect our behaviour – the language we use, the choices we make and the advice we give. By reframing what having DRA means, we have a chance of changing the experience for millions of women

    Traditional approaches to Diastasis Rectus Abdominis are to try to remember as much of the anatomy as possible, learn how to isolate different muscles, breathe differently, and perform low level exercises…and whilst this may work for many, there are many who struggle with this and it is often unnecessarily slow at helping people return to their goal activities.

    In this course, a practical, interactive approach to Diastasis Rectus Abdominis is taken. The content is clinically relevant, practical and based on the most recent research. There will be Real-Time Ultrasound used to help illustrate the points being made as well as lots of exercises and activities to help integrate the Thinking and Knowledge with Assessment and Management in real people.

    Are you ready to approach DRA differently? Are you ready to leave the fear and complexity behind? If so, then this is the course for you!

    Learning Objectives
