Frequently Asked Questions On Hernia Support

Abdominal hernia develops when an organ or fatty tissue pushes through a weak spot in a muscle or tissue. The most common area in which hernias appear is the abdomen. They can also appear in the thigh, belly button, or groin area.

After an abdominal hernia-repair surgery, a Post Surgical Hernia Belt is suggested by the medical professionals to relieve pain and provide compression. In cases where the hernia is recurrent a hernia belt is recommended to compress the weak area of the abdominal wall and prevent further hernias from occurring.

Possible causes of hernia include: 
  • Age
  • Excessive coughing or sneezing
  • Damage from a serious injury or surgery
  • Being pregnant
  • Improper lifting of heavy objects
  • Sudden weight gain, and
  • Being constipated. 

In order to relieve the symptoms of umbilical henias in the abdomen doctors recommend umbillical hernia support belts. With this hernia belt, pressure is applied to protect and heal these weak areas. The hernia truss will also reduce pain and accelerate the healing process through compression of the weak area.

Parastomal hernias develope when a deficiency in the stomach causes part of the bowel to bulge out, causing swelling of the stoma. An ostomy hernia belt prevents leaking and also eases pain of hernias after a surgical procedure.
