Hiatal Hernia Exercises Avoid
Indirectly, at best.: A hiatal hernia, by definition, is an enlarged opening in the diaphragm muscle that separates the chest from abdominal cavity. It is often used interchangeably with gerd; while often both present, they are distinctly separate diseases. Exercise may indirectly help gerd by leading to weight loss but it will not improve the anatomical abnormality of a hiatal hernia.See 1 more doctor answer
Of course: Just realize when you increase the pressure in your abdomen, you may increase the hh bulge, so if get a pain consistent with it, take a break (and maybe some tums) and let it pass. Will quickly find if anything specific triggers it to cause discomfort, and can modify workout accordingly. Still need good physical shape / activity, even with diagnosis. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer

GERD: If you are like most people, you are using "hiatal hernia" to mean gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd). This can be well-managed by avoiding the foods that cause heartburn, avoiding smoking, alcohol, and caffeine, and losing weight (if overweight). If your symptoms are bad at night, putting the head of the bed up on blocks helps, as does eating dinner well before bedtime. Hope this helps!See 1 more doctor answer
I believe that I have a hiatal hernia due to the symptoms I have, what can I do to get rid of it? Also, can I do regular exercise i.E. Gym work.
Not likely: Your gastric symptoms should be treated by medications to reduce acid in the stomach. Only severe hiatal hernia symptoms need surgical repair. Most of them can be managed by lifestyle changes (weight loss, cessation of tobacco and alcohol, regular exercise etc). Gym should be fine. Hopefully you have had an upper endoscopy and xray studies to make an accurate diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
Can Small sliding Hiatal Hernia rlly be reversed by exercises shown over the net.? No GERD symptoms at all. Jus scared it night grown in future? Ty.
No: First of all, don't worry about a small asymptomatic hiatal hernia. It is very common and does not require treatment. When you read about exercise and hiatal hernias it is to lose weight since obesity can be associated with hiatal hernias and GERD. Asymptomatic hiatal hernias are not treated, GERD symptoms are.
Hi can a small sliding hiatal hernia get bigger and worse with time? Anything to avoid for it not to get bigger? No heartburn, GERD anything yet. Help
Lot's of people...: ...have hiatal hernias, whether detected by x-ray or endoscopy. Most are sliding type & appear intermittently, requiring no intervention especially when small. Pls call your doctor & ask him/her your question to get a most accurate response re: hernia size as well its reducibility. Some hiatal hernias, like large paraesophageal ones, carry potentially great concern, but yours is symptom-free.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually: A hiatal hernia is an enlargement of the hole in the diaphragm thru which the esophagus passes to enter into the abdomen. This usually causes no symptoms but may contribute to acid reflux if the stomach slides thru this hole into the chest. Theoretically, increased abdominal pressure, such as ab exercises, may accentuate this reflux; if so, this would cause heartburn at the time.See 1 more doctor answer

Son is 15 he started workin on abdominal exercises I found like a bump on his lower chest N when I touch it he feels no pain. Hiatal hernia? Worry?
Not a hiatal hernia: A hiatal hernia would be located deep within the upper abdominal cavity, behind the lower end of the sternum or breastbone. The hole or defect that the stomach herniates through is in the diaphragm not the abdominal wall muscles. What you describe maybe something in the skin, like a sebaceous cyst or a lipoma, a benign fatty growth. Enlargement or pain should prompt a visit to your family doctor.
Lupus makes my joints stiff most of the time and feel fatigue due to fibrositis also I have hiatal hernia, what exercises you recommend for me?
Depends on symptoms: Many hiatal hernias require no treatment at all. Often the hiatal hernia is associated with gastresophogeal reflux disease (gerd). Symptoms of gerd can be treated with over the counter antacids. If these fail, there are prescription strength acid blockers available. If these are ineffective you should see a gastroenerologist. Less than 5% of gerd related problems require surgical correction.See 1 more doctor answer
I am 34 and have a hiatal hernia. I drink alcohol occasionally. I watch my diet and exercise gas and bloating have increased. Why? Soothing remedies?
See your doctor: Increased gas and bloating are symptoms of malabsorption, generally. This can be multifactorial, i.e. Related to diet, stomach, gallbladder or pancreatic disease, or a host of other issues. Sometimes over the counter products containing mylicon can be of some help, but I would recommend a thorough evaluation with your primary doctor and perhaps upper endoscopy (egd).See 1 more doctor answer
Hole in diaphragm: The diaphragm is the muscle that separates the chest- from the abdominal cavity. Many structures have to go thru the diaphragm in order to enter into the abdominal cavity, including the esophagus, the aorta, and the vena cava. The hiatus is the hole in the diaphragm thru which the esophagus passes. This can enlarge, allowing the stomach to "yo-yo" up into the chest: this is called a hiatal hernia.See 2 more doctor answers
