Intra-Abdominal Pressure

Intra-abdominal pressure is normal. Understanding what forces excessively increase pressure in the chamber of  the abdomen is crucial. The chambers of the thorax and pelvis are directly affected by the forces produced by excessive intra-abdominal pressure.

In simple terms, as you inhale, your diaphragm (breathing muscle) contracts. Your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles lengthen to accommodate this increase in pressure. As you exhale, your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles contract to assist your out breath. In other words, your core muscles - the diaphragm, abdominals and pelvic floor (along with some intricate spinal muscles) - have a very important job of maintaining optimal pressure in the cavities of the thorax, abdomen and pelvic floor. (Without some pressure our organs would be very challenged to stay still and in their place!)

To avoid tears in connective tissue that lead to prolapse, abdominal separation and hernias it is important to understand how these core muscles work in harmony to prevent excessive intra-abdominal pressure.

If you breath, move and exercise correctly your whole body will be healthier. Muscles and connective tissue will have optimum function avoiding, improving and restoring abdominal separation (Diastasis Recti), tears (hernias) and prolapses. Good news for all!
