Rectus Diastasis

Rectus diastasis refers to the separation of the rectus muscles, also known as the “six-pack” muscles. Normally, these muscles join at the midline of the abdomen. However, when a patient has rectus diastasis, the muscles separate and stretch apart, creating a space in between them. This condition causes the belly to bulge forward, resulting in an undesirable cosmetic effect that diet and exercise alone can’t fix.

If you suspect you have a hernia, or you have a protruding bulge near the groin or abdomen, it is important to seek immediate evaluation at the Los Angeles Hernia Center. Untreated hernias can lead to irreversible damage and the development of life-threatening complications, so time is of the essence.
