Exercises for Diastasis Recti

During pregnancy, muscles in your abdomen expand and separate as your linea alba (the tissue between that set of muscles) stretches to make room for baby. After pregnancy, many women will notice an indentation in the middle of their bellies, right down the center of the “six-pack” area. But for some moms, that gap is wide and needs help being repaired.
Mountain Land Physical Therapist Madison Splan shows us some exercises to help correct diastasis recti. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with one of our therapists, please visit https://mlpt.me/3oomZ7T.

February Staff Photo Spotlight

This month’s Staff Photo Spotlight is on Taylor Hunter, Corporate Recruiter at our home office in Salt Lake City, Utah. Taylor’s photo was chosen for the month of February in our 2021 calendar.

Taylor’s winning photo was taken as Taylor and his girlfriend, Sophie Shinsky, backcountry skied the stunning Sawtooth Mountains in Stanley, Idaho. The Sawtooth Mountains are home to two of the 50 Classic Ski descents in North America. This range has no ski resorts, limited guiding information, and is mostly accessed by doing 5+ miles flat skinning before reaching the bottom of the mountains. On this day, Taylor and Sophie had the whole breathtaking range to themselves!

Great photo, Taylor! Thank you so much for submitting it to the Staff Photo Contest. We look forward to seeing more of your amazing photos.
