Hernia Support Underwear Briefs
Unfortunately for some people, whether it's congenital or through the wear and tear of everyday life, they will experience a hernia.
A hernia is defined as the protrusion of an organ through the lining of the body cavity that normally contains it. The most common type of hernia involves the abdomen, and the patient may have pain and soreness at the site of the hernia. To repair a hernia, the patient will most likely need to undergo surgery. Fortunately, recovery is typically fast and most patients do not suffer from any long-term complications of having a hernia.
For those dealing with the pain associated with having a hernia, hernia support underwear can help to relieve some of this discomfort. These specially designed underwear can be worn before and after the patient undergoes surgery to repair the hernia. Hernia briefs work to minimize a patient’s pain by essentially immobilizing the hernia. This happens because the underwear put pressure on the hernia. With the hernia immobilized, the patient is able to go on about his or her daily schedule in a normal fashion. Without the use of these special underwear, a patient with a hernia would not be able to enjoy his or her daily activities without experiencing a great deal of pain.
Hernia support underwear along with hernia trusses, belts and girdles are also easier to wear than other items designed to relieve the pain associated with a hernia. They fit like regular underwear and are less bulky than other pain relieving options. These underwear fit easily under regular clothes and are comfortable for the patient to wear. Hernia briefs also do not cause the chafing and various rashes associated with other items designed for this purpose. Other people will not be able to tell that a person is wearing hernia briefs unless they are told by the wearer.
Many hernia briefs allow the patient to add or remove support cushions from the briefs. This can be very beneficial to patients during their recovery period after having surgery to repair a hernia, as they can add additional support if needed. This also gives the patient the ability to gradually remove support cushions as they heal, which slowly decreases the pressure that is applied to the area of the hernia. This method is much better for the patient than just suddenly removing the support altogether. If used correctly, hernia support briefs can go a long way in providing the support and pain relief that someone with a hernia would benefit from.
