Men tend to carry their wal­let in the back pocket of their trousers. Con­ve­nient, but it can cre­ate a pocket in the mus­cle ly­ing un­der­neath the wal­let, lead­ing to pain and dis­com­fort. Some tips: Re­move your wal­let or other items if you have to sit some­where for long, or if you are driv­ing. Go for a briefcase or bag with a wide ad­justable strap, long enough to loop over your head. This dis­trib­utes the weight across your body evenly. Switch sides ev­ery now and then if you are car­ry­ing a heavy bag or briefcase. Empty out un­nec­es­sary items. Place wal­lets and cell­phones in the front pock­ets of your bag. Stretch­ing around to reach for your wal­let can re­sult in neck or back pulls.
