What exactly is a muscle strain in your abdomen wall?
Muscle strains are also referred to as a muscle pull or tear. Strains, sprains, and tears to the abdomen is an extremely common injury among individuals. A muscle strain essentially occurs when there’s a tear somewhere in your abdomen muscle. Muscle sprains can occur from an over strenuous workout, fatigue, using improper lifting techniques, and other similar activities that may cause stress on your stomach. Athletes especially are more prone to such injuries to the stomach as they’re frequently turning, bending, and moving around.
Do you think you have an abdominal strain? Symptoms that are specific to abdominal strains, pulls, or tears include:
- Discomfort especially when you move, twist, or turn Muscle spasms or cramping
- Bruising in your stomach

What’s the Difference Between a Muscle Strain and Hernia?
Differentiating between a muscle strain and hernia can be a difficult and frustrating task as they both cause similar pain in the abdomen. Although they seem similar, they inherently are very different and have diverse treatment/causes.
An abdominal hernia occurs when an internal part of your body bulges out of its normal region. Abdominal hernias can be caused by many different factors including aging, the excess weight placed on your stomach, post stomach surgery, chronic coughing, and even being pregnant puts you at a larger risk of stomach hernias.
Symptoms that are specific to an abdomen hernia include:
- A bulge or bump in your stomach area
- Sensitivity around the infected region
- Pressure and discomfort
- Pain especially when coughing
Although the only way to completely heal a hernia is to endure surgery, it’s advised to wear a hernia support binder after surgery or before as it helps dramatically reduce your pain and compresses the bulge from protruding more. Luckily for you, we have a wide selection of hernia truss belts for all types of hernias!
