With an umbilical hernia or abdominal fracture, a bulge is caused by a tear in the connective tissue, in a weak spot in the abdominal region. This is called a "Hernia Umbilicalis", or in English; "Umbilical Hernia". This is different from a hernia in the back. So you should not confuse this with each other. "Hernia" is simply the Latin word for "fracture".
An umbilical hernia has created an opening in the peritoneum, around the navel. Everyday activities can tear this opening further. Think of the most simple activities, such as getting up from the bed / chair, going to the toilet, but also laughing, sneezing, etc. Basically any activity that puts pressure on the abdominal muscles. There are quite a few!
An umbilical hernia helps to support the abdominal wall, so that the abdominal wall can recover more quickly. In addition, the umbilical hernia ensures that the bulge that often occurs is no longer visible. You can easily wear this product under your clothing, so it is not visible. The silicone pad in the band is attached by means of Velcro and may / can always be removed. See also the images.
