Inguinal Hernia

Prevention of Inguinal Hernia

Steps you can take to prevent an inguinal hernia include maintaining a healthy weight, effectively treat constipation when it occurs and always exercise extreme caution when lifting heavy objects. Wear a lifting support or lifting belt and squat before lifting, letting your legs bear the strain and not your groin or back. Finally do not smoke as it leads to a chronic cough that can worsen your inguinal hernia.
