Stop Sitting on the Problem
If your wallet is big and bulky and you’re sitting on it, you may be at risk. It’s not just wallets, sitting on anything aside from the natural padding under your skin can cause the painful condition.
Wallet - Problems
Your wallet can be real pain for your back and the buttocks, and it can even lead to shooting pains down the legs. Sitting on a wallet for prolonged hours every day can compress sciatic nerve which passes beneath piriformis muscle and leads to piriformis syndrome, low back pain & self-inflicted sciatica.
The wallet acts as a wedge that forces the pelvis, spine and body out of alignment. Just as you would not sit on a brief case or a rock for an extended period of time, you should not sit on your wallet. Anyone who drives more than a half hour sitting on a wallet, is a candidate for sciatica or back pain.
Move Wallet to some where
Physiotherapists say that they have seen a surge in the number of men complaining of lower back pain and the lowly wallet is their chief suspect. Who sit down with their wallets in their back trouser pocket risk damaging key nerves.
The healthiest option is to move the wallet to your front pocket. You should remove it before you sit down, put it in your jacket pocket or somewhere else.
