  • You develop a hiatal hernia when a portion of your stomach forces out through your diaphragm. The diaphragm is between your chest and abdomen, and it is a large muscle that helps you breathe. The stomach is normally right below the diaphragm, but some part of it can push up through the diaphragm in people with hiatal hernia. You do not usually require any treatment for a hiatal hernia, but you may consider taking some drugs if you have some discomfort, and surgery is only necessary in rare cases. A better option is to practice hiatal hernia exercises which can help treat your condition and alleviate discomfort.
