Webinar 9: Dr. Rita Deering, DPT

Join us as we chat with Dr. Rita Deering on her amazing postpartum research. Rita has published 6+ peer reviewed publications. She has been studying abdominal strength in postpartum women, specifically diastasis recti, trunk fatiguability, steadinesss as well as running biomechanics. 

Rita's paper "Impaired Trunk Flexor Strength, Fatigability & Steadiness in Postpartum Women" was the first of its kind to recognize the deficits women are still dealing with 6 months postpartum.

We can't wait to dive more into her research and find out what she has learned along the way!
