What is a hernia?
A hernia is a painful condition where a part of the body or organ protrudes from the body due to soft skin tissue. This usually occurs in the abdominal wall where there is softer or damaged skin. Hernias are incredibly painful and can cause an onset of painful implications.
How can hernias happen?
There are various ways as to how someone may suffer a hernia. For example, through heavy lifting, intense pressure on the area, sporting accidents, slips or falls or bad road traffic accidents. The list is almost endless.
