Diastasis Recti In Chatham

A Message From Diastasis Recti Recovery Specialist Tejal Ramaiya, Owner of Body Moksha Physical Therapy:

  • Are you tired of feeling discouraged since the birth of your baby, thinking you’ll never be able to recover and get your body back to what it was before
  • Do you want to be relieved of the weakness in your abdominal area and be able to regain your core strength?
  • Are you wondering what you can do about it?
  • Are you looking for a long-term, natural solution that will help you get rid of these issues for good?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then rest assured, you’re in the right place!

Many postpartum women suffer unnecessarily because they’re often told…

Your doctor says to rest and that “abdominal separation is normal, it will go away on its own” – but weeks, months, and years go by and you’re still struggling.

Friends tell you to try doing some “YouTube workout videos” or “exercise classes” focusing on core strength and you’ll have your abs back in no time — but exercise never seems to help, no matter how hard you try.

A fellow mother tells you that this is “something you just get after having babies”, like leaking, and that there’s “not much you can do about it” — which is NOT the truth.

The Truth Is…

  • Resting doesn’t change anything. For some lucky women after pregnancy, diastasis heals up on its own. However, for many others, resting or just accepting it won’t improve it.
  • No matter how many times you go to an exercise class or how many hours you spend on core exercises — nothing seems to help.
  • While diastasis recti can be very common, it’s not normal, and ignoring it could potentially lead to other issues down the road. Having an abdominal separation isn’t just cosmetic, but can contribute to lower back, pelvic, and neck pain and urinary incontinence (which you might already be experiencing!)
  • Despite what you may think or may have been told – you don’t have to just learn how to deal with it. There are natural solutions and options waiting for you.

“We Help Active Adults Who Are Frustrated With An Injury Or Pain And Missing Their Workouts Get Back To Being Consistently Active So They Can Lead A Healthy And Fulfilling Life”

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what to do when experiencing postpartum concerns with diastasis recti and questions regarding your recovery. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…

A family member tells you to try doing more Kegels

The “experts” on YouTube recommend core exercises

A close friend mentions wearing an abdominal binder

All while the doctors tell you to “rest” and “start thinking about surgery”…

We know that it’s overwhelming to make a decision when there are so many options available and lots of advice being thrown your way. You don’t want to choose the wrong option and potentially end up making things worse for yourself.

We’re here to tell you that — it’s normal to feel stuck when trying to make a decision on what to do about diastasis recti.




At Body Moksha Physical Therapy we’ve created a 3-step-process to get rid of your postpartum concerns and diastasis recti — making sure it never comes back.


We know how frustrating the medical system can be when trying to figure out a solution to your issues and concerns. You’ll wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment — only to talk to the doctor for 10 minutes and be left wondering “What just happened? Did any of my questions even get answered?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re fast-paced, non-attentive, don’t give you the undivided attention you deserve, and your therapist doesn’t even have time to learn about your goals.

This is why Body Moksha’s first step is to listen to your story.

After working with a lot of patients who struggle with diastasis recti postpartum, we know that no two patients are the same. Each one has a different body, history, and type of pain they’re dealing with.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation, establish trust, and give you time to tell your story. This allows us to get the full picture of what’s going on, how it started, and how it’s impacting your life right now.


Many women have a diagnosis or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed a diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

Perhaps you’ve been given the label of diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, core weakness, hip, back, pelvic, neck pain, or even headaches.

You could have been told that your only options were to “learn how to deal with it”, “rest”, or “have surgery.”

While these options have the possibility to bring you temporary relief – they’re not addressing the root cause of the problem you’re experiencing or what can solve the issue moving forward.

Our goal here at Body Moksha Physical Therapy is to find the original cause of your pain, not only to learn about your diastasis recti but helping you learn how to manage it for future reference!

We understand that you might be skeptical about physical therapy and it is the right treatment for you. If that sounds like you, feel free to give us a call below. We’d love to discuss and talk about your concerns and see if we’re the right fit for you!


This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

  • Get back to exercising without fear of making your conditions worse or leaking
  • Be able to enjoy sex, stop missing out on activities with your family, and get back to living life without pain
  • Be able to play with your kids and be able to lift things around the house, at the gym, without worrying about whether you’re “doing things right”

Our best patients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle (even if they feel stuck right now!)

Dr. Tejal’s office is incredible. I came into her practice a few weeks ago barely able to walk, care for my child, or perform basic daily functions. She suggested physical therapy and dry needling. I have only had just a few sessions and I am already able to live again! I am truly grateful for the support, expertise, and dedicated care that Dr. Tejal and her team are giving me. – Sincerely, a very grateful patient!
