Liz Lush is a Brisbane physiotherapist and clinical lead at Mummy and Co Physiotherapy and Fitness, childbirth educator and tutor for physiotherapy students, and a mother of 4 children. Today she shares her journey (21 days post surgery at the time of recording this) for her large #diastasis or often called #DRA or #DRAM. For previous episodes covering more on DRA research and practical exercise tips, check out the previous episodes (click on the links) with Dr David Larson in July 2020 and physiotherapist Lashonda Jones in Sept 2020

In addition to treating women with DRA for years, Liz not only had a large DRA, she had a ventral hernia, and discusses the different kinds of surgeries and how her journey led her to make the surgical decision. She has such an interesting perspective as both a clinician and a patient.
