Patient: If fell of a ladder I was 12 feet high when I fell hit my head on a metal door landed on my back but me reflex was to try to stop the fall so I kind of made a forward motion movement with my abdominals pushing them outwards and now I have a abdominal separation similar to what pregnant women have, can this abdominal separation and umbilical hernia and (possible abdominal hernia) have been caused by this fall ??????
