Symptoms Of A Hernia

A hernia occurs when an organ in your body breaches through an an opening in the wall of your abdomen. This often causes your abdominal wall to bulge out, especially when your ab muscles are tightened. This isn’t the only type of hernia, however it is the most common. In hiatal hernias, for example, part of your stomach protrudes up through the esophagus opening in your diaphragm. There are many kinds of hernias, each with their own set of symptoms and treatment.

Causes Of Hernias

There are many things that can cause a hernia, some of them you can do something to prevent and others are hereditary. The most common causes are pregnancy, which weakens the abdomen, and lifting heavy weights or straining very hard. Of course, other contributing factors like the strength of your core, your age, weight and having recent surgery in that area can all contribute.
