Why You Should Wear a Compression Garment After Hernia Surgery

Did you know abdominal wall hernia repair is one of the most common types of surgery? According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) more than 1 million hernia repairs are performed each year in the United States.

There are different factors that contribute to the cause of hernias, such as pregnancy, history of abdominal or pelvic surgery, chronic constipation, heavy lifting activities & others. The most common symptom patients experience is pain or discomfort.

Here is when another question emerges: are compression garments recommended for hernia surgery? The answer is YES! It is important to highlight the benefits of compression garments for hernia patients since they provide support and relief for hernia pain throughout the day. After surgery is performed they help to minimize swelling, alleviating pain, and encouraging proper healing.

The most appropriate compression garments after hernia surgery are COMPRESSION CINCHERS OR FULL TORSO GARMENTSand depending on the healing progress you will be advised by your doctor to wear a garment for weeks or even months. 

It is vital to understand that compression must fit tightly to enjoy the benefits of compression for your health. Visit our compression-like specialty store.
