An inguinal hernia is a protrusion of an organ through the surrounding body tissue – often occurring through a weak area between the muscles. Hernias are more common in men than women, and usually occur in the groin or abdomen. A hernia can worsen with time, can be extremely painful during activities such as coughing and sneezing, and can severely limit your everyday and sports activities.
The Pro11 Hernia Belt is designed to provide effective support for inguinal hernias. Holding the hernia securely in place and supporting it with silicone pads, this belt provides superior support and pain reduction for both pre- and post-operative patients. Use of this belt can reduce the amount of time that you have to take off from sports and exercise due to a hernia.
How Does a Hernia Belt Work?
A hernia belt is an elasticated brace that holds the bulging herniated tissue in place to prevent it from protruding further. While a hernia belt usually cannot cure a hernia, it can be used as a temporary measure to prevent further herniation and ease pain and discomfort.
A hernia belt can be particularly useful in cases where doctors wish to observe the hernia for a period of time before they decide whether to operate or not. They can also provide post-operative support following surgery to fix a hernia.

This belt provides support to not only relieve pain caused by a hernia, but also to speed up your recovery so that you can be back on your feet – and back on the sports field or in the gym – without delay.
