No, not just to buy something. Pull it out when you’re sitting, especially in the car. A wallet in your back pocket forces one hip to sit higher than the other. Uneven hips put strain on your low back, making it more likely that you’ll be seeking back pain relief again soon.
2. Sit Right
If you’re sitting at a computer, move your monitor up so that you’re looking straight ahead at the screen. Your elbows should be to your side at a 90 degree angle, and your feet should rest flat on the floor. especially if you must mainta…
