Can I get a hernia from doing tae kwon do?

I think I got a hernia from tae kwon do.


Answer by  SHOAIB (50)

Yes tae kwon do can cause hernia. And its called sports hernia. Because its due to overstretching of muscles, pain is the main symptom and is relieved by months of rest and treatment.

It is possible to get a hernia from doing tae kwon do. Avoid straining your abdominal muscles until you can see a physician.

Do you know for sure this is a hernia? A hernia happens when part of an organ sticks through a week point or a tear in a thin muscular wall this holds the abdominal organs in place. Check with your doctor and see if tae kwon do can cause this.


Answer by  MattK (1713)

Any weakness in the muscles that can cause a hernia is certainly going to be exploited by placing increased pressure or force on that area. If you are prone to this condition, tae kwon do may be a contributor.

I think it's possible to get a hernia with any activity if you fall or lift something wrong. Do you feel anything protruding in that area or is it just extreme abdominal pain at this point?
