Hernia and Hernia Support Resources
Spring Trusses are best for moderate to maximum support.A spring truss is a specific type of truss for hernia relief. The function of a truss is to maintain a hernia in complete reduction. A truss puts inward pressure at the point of the hernia which is equal to the downward, outward pressure of the herniated organ itself.
There are two basic types of trusses:
- Elastic Trusses
- Spring Trusses
An elastic truss gives moderate to maximum support without the presence of a steel spring.
When wearing a spring or elastic truss it is important that the amount of pressure placed on the hernia is just enough to hold the hernia in. Excessive pressure placed on the hernia can increase the size of the hernia opening.
All hernia relief is dependent on identifying the hernia product that best suits your needs; specifically, support level.
