MUNIRA HUDANI- Diastasis Recti & Tummy Tuck Rehab
Show Notes

Today I speak with Munira Hudani,  a Pre- and Post-Natal physiotherapist in Canada, and an emerging leader for the management of Diastasis Rectus Abdominis. After years of frustration in landing inconsistent results with her clients, and the dissatisfaction in having to say “we just don’t have enough research right now,” Munira began to challenge the conventional method to managing DRA. She realized that part of the inconsistent results came down to how DRA was being conceptualized. She started practicing with a different set of principles which improved outcomes. She has now compiled all of her knowledge and experience into a new framework that revolutionizes how we conceptualize, assess, and manage DRA. She is passionately committed to transferring this knowledge to both professionals and patients so they can finally make sense of the steps to take when navigating this condition. 


We talk about: 

-learning about diastasis recti 

-separating DR from back pain and other dysfunctions 

-DR is not preventable 

-factors that lead to long-term issues 

-management of DR 

-problems with the research 

-Is the gap bad? 

-feeling at home in your body 

-targeting the transverse abdominis 

-experiencing pregnancy and motherhood 

-letting go of expectations
