There are many different types of hernias and several reasons why they occur. The most common is an inguinal hernia, as many as one in four men get it at some point in their lives. With a good hernia truss or hernia bandage, you can relieve both pain and discomfort. For those who suffer from abdominal wall hernias, hernia belts provide support and pain relief. In the case of inguinal and scrotal hernias, hernia pants also help to contain the hernia.
