Abdominal braces provide support for both the abdominal and back regions. As such, abdominal supports are ideal for those who are suffering from an abdominal hernia or for those recovering from an abdominal hernia surgery as well as for those with slipped discs, degenerative spinal disorder, lower back pain, and other similar disorders and conditions of the abdomen, back, and spine. Abdominal support braces can also provide support that helps relieve pressure on the back, spine, and abdomen during pregnancy.
Suffering or recovering from a hernia or abdominal surgery? Or do you need extra support while carrying your baby? Here at BraceAbility, we feature top-of-the-line abdominal braces that will help provide relief from hernia, help you recover from surgery, or help you feel comfortable during pregnancy.
How important is it to get a good-quality pregnancy abdominal support? Very important, if you consider this fact: during the later stages of pregnancy, greater strain is placed on the back, bladder abdominal muscles, and pelvic floor. Abdominal supports and stomach wraps, specifically pregnancy belly braces, help decrease pressure on the spine and pelvic floor. Maternity belly supports also help decrease lower back pain and abdominal pain, and may even prevent bladder problems.
If not properly addressed, abdominal pain and back pain during pregnancy can have a negative impact on a woman's daily lifestyle and can lead to a difficult delivery or even create problems that can continue for an extended period of time even after delivery.
Perhaps the most common type of hernias that develop are in the abdomen. An abdominal hernia occurs when a weakness or vulnerability in the abdominal wall develops into a restricted or localized hole through which the contents of a body cavity (for instance, adipose tissue or abdominal organs—usually portions of intestine or abdominal fatty tissue to be exact) may jut out.
So what are the causes of hernia? Although some abdominal hernias can possibly be congenital or present at birth, others usually develop later in life. Some involve pathways that are formed during fetal development, existing openings in the abdominal cavity, or areas of abdominal-wall weakness. Some common causes of hernia are the following: obesity, heavy lifting, coughing, straining during a bowel movement or urination, chronic lung disease, and fluid in the abdominal cavity. The bad news is that one can really do little to prevent certain areas of the abdominal wall from becoming weak—which can potentially become a site for a hernia.
The good news, though, is that most hernias can be treated by using an abdominal hernia brace, without the need for surgery. When it comes to hernia treatment, however, it is usually individualized and often differs with each patient. As such, a discussion between doctor and patient is important especially regarding the benefits and risks of surgical versus nonsurgical management. It must be said, though, that surgery is not always an option for those suffering from hernia and can even be deemed unsafe for those who have severe preexisting medical conditions.
Generally, using an abdominal hernia brace can help treat certain hernias, like reducible hernias. An abdominal hernia support may be helpful in holding back the protrusion of selected hernias especially those that can be treated without surgery. Waist sleeves provide superb support and comfort while allowing for greater mobility and is perfect for those seeking hernia protection, the active or inactive, sports enthusiasts, arthritic patients, or those just seeking the best comfort available in a medically designed brace.
