When an internal body part is pushed out through a weakness or tear in the surrounding tissue wall or muscle, ‘Hernia’ develops. It occurs when the contents of any internal body part bulge out of their original location. Usually, muscles of a human body are strong enough to hold adjacent organs in place; but if there are any weak spots, Hernia can certainly develop.
Why Does Hernia Occur?
Sometimes, muscle weakness may be present at birth but more often, it develops later in life. Any activity exerting an excess pressure on the abdomen can cause Hernia.
Lifting heavy objects without stabilizing abdominal muscles
Diarrhea & chronic constipation
Strained urination & bowel movements
Tips to Prevent Hernia
Regulate weight, if you are obese
Follow healthy, fibre-rich diet and regular exercise
Avoid lifting heavy loads
If you are suffering from Hernia which isn’t causing any problem while performing daily life activities, you may not need a surgical procedure to cure it. But, medication and physiotherapy may cure it effectively. However, if you experience extreme pain due to the Hernia bothering you during everyday’s activity, you might need a Hernia repair surgery. Hernia hardly heals by itself and usually grows larger. Thus, surgery is probably the ultimate treatment alternative to cure Hernia.
A Hernia repair surgery can be an open surgical procedure or a laparoscopic procedure.
