An abdominal hernia refers to a protrusion of your intestine through an opening or weak area of the abdominal wall. While this does cause a noticeable bulge, it does not typically cause a lot of pain.
A hernia can occur in a number of places on your body, with the hernia’s classification depending upon where—one that develops around your belly button is known as an umbilical hernia, while an inguinal hernia might appear in the groin or scrotum area, for example. Learn the difference between an abdominal strain and a hernia.
Thanks to the versatility of this abdominal hernia brace, it can help whether you are in need of an abdominal binder for an umbilical hernia or a femoral hernia in the leg.
Treatment of a hernia usually involves surgery due to the risk of your intestine becoming stuck in a hernia, which can block the intestine or cut off blood supply to the organ, which has a number of serious consequences.
Often you will need to wear a binder after abdominal hernia surgery to protect and help your incision heal. (Learn more about the do’s and don’t of stomach surgery recovery.) Abdominal binders for hernia care might also be worn before surgery to prevent your hernia from occurring.
For some, surgery is not an option. In these cases, wearing an abdominal hernia binder can help keep the pressure on the weak area of your abdominal wall, providing pain relief and preventing your hernia from popping out.
Yes, wearing a postpartum belly band as soon as possible after childbirth, no matter if you delivered vaginally or with a C-section, works wonders for your healing process. For support during your pregnancy view our collection of maternity support belts.
The compression, along with the natural after-birth contractions that you have, pushes your uterus from the outside in, helping it find its pre-pregnancy shape and location. The same is true for your other abdominal organs, compression can help your stomach and intestines drop back into their previous position.
You should feel like your lower back is supported, even though your abdominal muscles are not yet able to do this job on their own.
In addition to this binder, we have also provided a list of the 5 best products to help ease the pain, reduce discomfort, and improve the appearance of C-section incisions. Because after delivery, the last thing you want to worry about is painful incisions, scars, and discomfort.
This tummy wrap has several life-changing features that make it stand out from other abdominal support braces. Following we list the top 4 reasons why people love this hernia truss belt.
This abdominal hernia binder is a highly adjustable garment, fitting average to plus-size women and men. (See more plus-size braces.)
With only a single Velcro closure, this stomach wrap is easy to use and can be attached to any part of the brace. Meaning, this abdominal binder for hernia care can be adjusted to just about any body size. It also makes it very easy to adjust the degree of compression and support this abdominal hernia truss applies.
This versatility also eliminates some of the stress of picking the right size; if you’re in between the sizes for our abdominal wraps for hernia treatment, order the larger version and you can simply fasten it tighter.
Made of breathable, 3 or 4-panel elastic, depending if you choose the 9 or 12-inch version, for comfort during extended wear. The low-profile, lightweight fit of these abdominal hernia belts fits easily and comfortably beneath your clothes.
Its premium-panel elastic design allows this hernia support belt to conform to your body shape, making it comfortable to sit, stand, or lay down in. The stitching also prevents this C-section band from rolling down or bunching.
Many users describe the flexible fit as being so comfortable you forget you’re even wearing a C-section wrap.
The comfortable compression this abdominal binder provides helps reduce swelling by boosting blood circulation, which promotes healing and protects your incision site after surgery.
But remember, it’s important to consult with your doctor or physical therapist about using abdominal supports after a C-section or abdominal surgery, as splinting is not right for everyone.
Another outstanding feature on this belly band is its Velcro closure, which is much stronger than most. That is because it is medical-grade Velcro, making it 10 times stronger than the retail-grade Velcro you’ll find on braces at Target, Walmart, or your local drugstore.
Medical-grade Velcro is meant to open and close 900 times, unlike retail-grade Velcro, which is only meant to open and close 90 times.
Who can wear it? Available in sizes S through XL, fitting a wide range of body circumferences, so anyone from average to morbidly obese adults can wear this abdominal bandage.
How do I know what size to get? Using a fabric tape measure, stand up and measure the circumference of your abdomen at its widest point. To get the most accurate measurements, we recommend having a close family member or friend assist you. Refer to our sizing graphic in the photos above to choose the correct size.
What conditions does this hernia belt treat? This hernia support helps treat and provide support for hernias, diastasis recti, bladder problems, and abdominal muscle strain/injury. The splint also promotes healing postpartum or following hysterectomy, C-section, gastroplasty, liposuction, or abdominoplasty surgery.
How do I put it on? Position the binder behind your body making sure the Velcro strip is in your right hand facing inward. Wrap the binder around your body and secure with Velcro strip once you’ve reached a nice, snug fit. For some, it may be easier to lay down on top of the flat binder and then wrap it around yourself. If it is still too difficult or if you would like a tighter fit, have somebody help you apply the binder.
Can I wear this girdle over my shirt? Yes.
How tall is this support? Available in a 9” and 12” version.
What material is this brace made of? Made of latex-free, premium-panel elastic and a Velcro closure.
