Can I Run While Having A Hernia
A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining protrudes thru, creating a sac. Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac. Many hernias develop during fetal life and become evident in childhood or as an adult. Some develop following a prior abdominal operation. The cornerstone ...Read more
Depends on…: Location & size of hernia as well as whether it is at risk for incarceration (entrapment of loop/s of bowel). If it is small & easily reducible, wearing support to protect the hernia should allow you to run.

If it helps.: A hernia belt may help support an area where a hernia is present, which can minimize the discomfort related to the hernia. Furthermore, it may reduce the risk of bowel getting stuck in the hernia, although this is unproven.

I have GERD grade c and hiatus hernia. Used to consume alcohol but have stopped for now. Can this condition reverse itself. I run 3 km daily.
Only with effort: Gerd worsens with factors that push stomach acid back up, such as being overweight, eating large meals and laying flat...Or factors that relax your lower esophagus allowing reflux, like fatty foods, alcohol, caffeine, so running to get in shape and laying off alcohol helps a lot. But the condition is being helped by your hard work, not truly "reversed by itself". ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
