My son-in-law has an Umbilical Hernia. A doctor said it is massive. You and Dr. Dahlman are saying that there is an exercise for people with Hiatal Hernias. Is there something for people with massive umbilical hernias and would it cure the hernia or just reduce the bad effects of it. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. My son-in-law is 37 years old and he is overweight and is having problems holding down a job because of all the sick days he has had to take. He probably weighs 200 to 250 pounds. Would losing his weight help or cure his Umbilical Hernia?
There is no similar massage available for an umbilical hernia as there is for a hiatal hernia that I know of. Yes, losing weigh might be helpful, but I don't think it will cure and umbilical hernia.
