Wallets and Phones: May Be the Source of Your Pain
Backpacks: Choosing Wisely for Your Child’s Well BeingToday we hear a lot about ergonomic chairs, and desks. We practice good posture to keep us looking good. And then we wreck it all by putting fat wallets or a cell phone in our back pocket!
When you sit on a wallet or cell phone, it causes your pelvis to be higher on one side than the other. This causes extra stress throughout your entire spine, including the muscles and nerves that run up your back. The stress can be the cause of many complaints: back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or headaches, to name a few.
No matter how good your posture is, or how well designed your office furniture is, if you are sitting on a wallet or phone all day long, it will cause pain. If you are getting chiropractic adjustments, it can also limit the effectiveness of the adjustments.
Wallets and Phones: The Solution
The best solution is to put wallets and phones in your front pocket or carry them in some other way. Your back will thank you!
