Men’s Hernia Support
While surgery is often offered as a solution for a number of types of hernias, this is not always one’s first choice or even an option for some. In such instances, a hernia truss for men may be a good choice for treating a reducible hernia externally. See BraceAbility’s full line of hernia belts.
This umbilical hernia belt treats reducible abdominal hernias—in other words, ones that can be pushed back into the abdomen—such as (based on the position of the hernia):
- hernia umbilicialis/paraumbilicialis
- hernia ventralis
- hernia ventralis lateralis
- hernia epigastrica
This umbilical hernia belt is specifically designed for a man’s body. Ladies, do not feel left out. BraceAbility offers a comparable hernia support for women.
The plastic-reinforced silicone pad for reducing a hernia is distinctly shaped and prominent. An adhesive layer means it can easily be applied directly to the hernia site. Additional pads are available, so that one does not have to replace the entire abdominal hernia belt when the original silicone pad loses its shape or is worn out.
The hernia belt itself is made of elastic, skin-friendly material. There are also two splints in the dorsal area for support that are 5.1 inches in height (13 cm). The bandage for men with hernias is available in three sizes fitting hip circumferences 23 inches to 60 inches.
Hernia Truss for Men
Besides a palpable bulge, a hernia may also cause pain, a burning sensation, constipation nausea, vomiting or a fever. But even more significant is the damage these symptoms can imply, such as tissue strangulation (loss of blood supply) and death. This can lead to severe pain or life-threatening complications, depending upon what tissue is involved. Obviously, it is important to seek the aid of a medical professional if one suspects a hernia.
Generally speaking, a hernia refers to when fatty tissue or an organ (e.g., a part of the bowel) pushes through a weak spot in the tissue that normal holds it in in—in the case of an abdominal hernia, the abdominal wall.
While surgery is often pursued to treat hernias, some cases, such as when the umbilical hernia is small and does not cause symptoms of entrapment or strangulation, non-invasive methods may be pursued. In such instances, wearing a hernia binder can hold the hernia in place by pressuring the skin and the abdominal wall.
Taking medications and making lifestyle and diet changes as well as losing weight, if applicable, can also help with some types of hernias.
