Don't Sit On Your Wallet

I got this mail from my bro..
Please share this with your husbands, fathers, brothers and male friends.

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.

The healthiest option is to move the wallet to your front pocket. If it's
must to keep your wallet in your back pocket, you should remove it before
you sit down.
