Can I exercise with a hernia?

Answer

According to Jillian Michaels, exercising with a hernia is perfectly acceptable, but it is important to avoid further aggravating the muscle where the hernia is located. Typically, moderate aerobic exercises like swimming or riding a bike are the best bets for hernia patients.

The water pressure on the hernia will help keep it from bulging while swimming, while riding a bike will primarily work the leg muscles without placing too much stress on the abdominal area, according to Jillian Michaels. It is important to note that if any sudden pain develops in the hernia during exercise, you should contact your doctor right away.
