A hiatal hernia is when the upper part of the stomach pokes through the opening in the diaphragm muscle made by the esophagus. This opening can get enlarged (mainly from not chewing your food enough and swallowing it whole) and can cause symptoms of acid reflux.
Often times the nerve supply to the diaphragm muscle is compromised as well from the neck and also the lower middle back.
