    What if you have hernia?

    I am posting this thread because I used to have hernia when I was younger thatís why I did not continue lifting weights when my older brother had a barbell. Now that I am old, Iím still doing 30 to 40 push ups in the morning as part of my daily exercise in order to keep me fit. Thatís aside from the stretching and bending for the warmup. But recently, I was struck by hernia again so I decided to quit the push ups and just settle for the stretching and bending.

    Now here is my question on the issue of hernia. Is it okay to use an athletic supporter and do the push ups again? When I wear the supporter, I feel normal and I even carry some heavy objects with no difficulty (although I only do that for testing the effect of the athletic supporter). What do you think, guys?

    Re: What if you have hernia?

    It depends what hernia are you talking about. There are several kinds femoral, inguinal, hiatus etc

    Generally speaking anything that applies pressure to the hernial area should be avoided despite the support. Eventually the muscle wall becomes weak and the hernia more obvious.

    Part of the rehab process is slowly learning how to use your ab muscles again - when the abs contract they squeeze the space that houses your abdominal cavity that houses your organs. This creates pressure which can re-aggravate your hernia - so you should start with exercises that help stabilize your spine, and not put so much pressure on the groin.

    Re: What if you have hernia?

    At the moment, I haven't been unlucky to have such hernia injury. Even though it's very easy to be operated on and taken care of as long as it's identified on time, it's still one hell of a nasty injury.

    I think there was a time when I almost suffered it as a result of the hard manual labor I was into because I experienced a very sharp pain above my groin region. I took precautions immediately and it was stopped.
