  • Can Standing All Day Be A Contributing Factor For Developing Inguinal Hernias?

    I was wondering if doctors would advise against standing desks if you are trying to avoid an inguinal hernia. I have had an indirect hernia on one side and want to make good choices to try to avoid the same thing on the other side. Thanks.

      Standing does not increase risk of hernia. It’s mostly a genetic predisposition and things that increase abdominal pressure may expedite a symptomatic hernia. These include chronic cough, straining for constipation.

        Dear Bmul100.
        I agree that standing will not increase your risk for a hernia.

          Thank you, Doctors! An excellent question, which I am sure many people have had.
