What I am about to share with you is so simple, that at first you might be tempted to discount it as sound advice. But PLEASE... not yet. Not until you have read this entire post.
If you carry a wallet in your back pocket then you are contributing to, if not causing your back pain and discomfort.
It's true... Notice this quote from money watch this morning:
"A thick wallet carried in a back pocket, or a heavy purse slung over a shoulder, is a common cause of chronic back pain. (In fact, among men it actually has a clinical name: Wallet Neuropathy.)"
Who would think that could make such a difference? But why? Notice what the article goes on to say...
"Here’s what’s happening: With men, a thick wallet not only twists the spine while sitting but it also compresses the large nerve that extends through each buttock and down each leg. Sciatica is the inflammation of these nerves, and it can result in anything from mild tingling to debilitating pain in the lower back and body."
So what is the solution?
Simply put your wallet in your side pocket or a jacket pocket.
You owe it yo yourself (and your back) to give this a try. Especially in this economy where people do not have the money for expensive back surgery, costly pills and EXTRA chiropractor visits.
Give it a try and let me know what you notice!
