Guys, it’s time for you to stop sitting on your wallet in your back pocket. Dr. Stuart McGill is a professor of spine biomechanics at the University of Waterloo. And he says, a thick wallet can put tremendous stress on your hip joint and lower back, which can lead to chronic back pain.
It can also tilt your pelvis and misalign your spine. Dr. McGill says, either remove your wallet from your pants entirely when you’re sitting or driving… or switch to a thinner money clip… or go digital and use something like Apple Pay or Google Wallet.
