Searching for relief from the discomfort and pain caused by an abdominal hernia? Though hernias are very rarely life-threatening, they can cause discomfort and affect you physically and mentally. Luckily, treatment is available.
A truss belt provides much-needed comfort and support while shortening recovery time following hernia repair surgery or preventing recurrent abdominal hernias. By applying targeted compression to your umbilical hernia, this truss for men and women can help relieve symptoms, allowing you to return to your favorite activities.
Mild to serious hernias can develop in many different places, from various causes. The most common type is an inguinal hernia, occurring when fat or part of the small intestine protrudes through a weak spot in the lower abdominal wall near your groin. However, hernias can also occur in your thighs, stomach, and upper chest area. Although we do have underwear or brief-like, inguinal hernia compression shorts for sports, this waist support band is intended to aid hernias in the abdomen.
Just like an inguinal hernia, abdominal hernias also arise when weakened areas in the abdominal wall allow organs or other tissues to push through. There are several types of abdominal hernias. Some of the most common abdominal hernia types include:
Not only are abdominal girdles for hernia relief an enormous benefit to those recovering from hernia surgery or other abdominal operations, but they’re also incredibly helpful for pregnant or postpartum women struggling with diastasis recti (stomach muscle separation) after pregnancy. For the best diastasis recti treatment, remove the pad and apply the belly band alone. For more options, check out this diastasis recti support or our post-C-section abdominal binders.
Possibly the best feature of this belt for umbilical hernia natural treatment is that it comes with an innovative pressure pad. The pad has a raised bump, providing maximum compression directly to your hernia. Place the raised bump over the top of the bulge to hold in your hernia, preventing it from protruding out more. Depending on the severity of your abdominal hernia, this pad can be removed for less support.
The pad is comprised of silicone and plastic, encased within a thin lycra cover (85% polyester, 15% spandex). These materials make the pad durable enough to provide maximum support while also being comfortable against your skin. The pad has a washable cover made of terrycloth fabric (100% polyester) so you can wear it beneath your clothes without irritation. Medical-grade, hook and loop fastener enables you to remove the pad and place it anywhere along the truss to the exact location of your hernia.
These features make our hernia bandage with pad stand out compared to OTC products you can buy at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, or other big box stores. If you already have a hernia wrap but the pad is getting old or overused, you’re welcome to buy a replacement hernia pad.
Thanks to its simple design, you can apply this women’s and men’s hernia strap easily all by yourself. Position the removable pad on the umbilical hernia belt. Wrap the compression garment around your waist so the pad applies pressure directly over your hernia. Its hook and loop fasteners are great for those who have arthritis in their hands. The simple application also allows you to adjust or tighten the truss as needed.
This hernia corset supports weakened abdominal muscles thanks to its ribbed and webbed elastic construction and sturdy, hook and loop fastener.

The low-profile, elastic-like material is a combination of nylon and spandex, making the compression bandage lightweight and breathable. You can easily hide it beneath or over your clothes, depending on your preference. This herniated belly button binder is also latex free, making it safe for those allergic.
Two removable stays located on both sides of the hernia belt for females and males help prevent uncomfortable and irritating rolling or bunching. These stays enable you to wear the herniated belly button device all day without having to readjust it. If desired, you can remove these spiral stays.

Those that are considered overweight or obese are prone to many different negative health effects such as diabetes, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, heart issues, and overall body or back pains. Aside from those conditions, being plus size also makes you more susceptible to developing abdomen hernias. Being a large individual increases the amount of strain and tension that is placed directly on the stomach walls. When these muscles are overworked, this can result in them becoming weak - leading the development of a hernia.
