Diastasis recti is a whole body issue. Which means it takes more than one modality to heal it. It takes the ability to assess the body’s alignment, structure, movement patterns and how the body is being affected by its past and present daily activities. It also takes the commitment to make changes in your body.
Our company name reflects the “partners” who come together to help you heal. The place where our ability to assess the body and your commitment to change it meet is the partnership between us and you. We are here to educate and support you in your ability to heal your body yourself. “Partners” also refers to our partnership with all of the women’s health practitioners we work with as well as your current health team.
Brooke and Regina created PIDR in response to the hurdles and roadblocks they were seeing with their fitness and massage clients. Chronic back pain, the stubborn tummy pooch, pelvic floor dysfunction, debilitating pain during pregnancy…many times diastasis recti was the underlying problem with these issues. This mutual experience brought them together to study and train how to rehabilitate this common condition. They began by becoming certified practitioners of the Tupler Technique®. And are currently the only trained practitioners in Colorado. Over the years they have continued to educate themselves on the many variables of treating diastasis recti from a variety of sources, including the latest medical research; Katie Bowman (biomechanist) and Diane Lee (physiotherapist).
