#DidYouKnow: The average commuter’s bag weighs in at 16lbs? This added weight creates an imbalance that strains both your shoulders and #back muscles.
To reduce your risk of #backpain caused by carrying a heavy bag or purse, make sure your bag weighs less than 10% of your body weight.
If you or someone you know is experiencing chronic, worsening, or debilitating back or neck pain, consult the medical professionals at Montesano Spine and Sport.
