    Wallet And Back Pain

    Wallet And Back Pain

    Wallets are causing men unbearable pain
    and it has nothing to do with a lack of cash.
    Physiotherapists say they have seen a surge
    in the number of men complaining of lower
    back pain and the lowly wallet is their chief
    Experts say men who sit down with their
    wallets in their back trouser pocket risk
    damaging key nerves.
    Men who drive with their wallet stuffed into
    their back trouser pocket appear to be most
    at risk.

    The condition is a form sciatic
    neuropathy, since it affects the
    sciatic nerve. But it's becoming
    so common that it has even
    been given other names -- hippocket
    syndrome or wallet
    sciatica is piriformis syndrome, so
    called because of the involvement of the
    piriformis, a short, thick, pear-shaped
    muscle that runs from your sacrum, the
    lower part of your pelvic bone, to the
    head of your femur, or upper thigh bone.
    You use this muscle when you
    extend your hip or rotate it outward.
    In most people, the sciatic nerve cord
    runs near this muscle.

    •Treatment is aimed at maximizing
    mobility and independence. The
    cause of the nerve dysfunction
    should be identified and treated as
    appropriate. In some cases, no
    treatment is required. Exercise and
    physical therapy is introduced into
    the treatment regime .
    Prevention varies depending on the cause of the nerve
    damage. Avoid prolonged sitting or lying with pressure on the
    buttocks, and exercise.
    Or ……the safest way …. Keep your wallet in safe hands …
    with your wife’s ….

    Easy exercise program
    for low back pain relief
    1. Muscle stretching exercise
    With both knees bent, place both hands together under
    the knee of the other leg (the lower leg), and gently pull
    the bottom leg toward your chest and hold both thighs
    closely until a stretch is felt in the buttock area.
    Hold 30 seconds .
    Repeat 1-2 times per day

    2.Muscle stretching exercise
    • The Psoas Major muscle can greatly limit low
    back mobility when tight. It often is one of the
    sources of low back pain in patients who have
    difficulty standing for extended periods or
    kneeling on both knees. This muscle can be
    stretched in a half kneeling position (kneeling on
    one knee). Rotate the leg outward and tighten
    the gluteal muscles on the side you’re stretching.
    Next, lean forward through the hip joint rather
    then bending through the lumbar spine. A stretch
    should be felt in the front of the hip that the
    patient is kneeling on.
    – Hold 30 seconds
    – Repeat
    – 1-2 times per day

    3. Hamstring muscle stretching exercise
    The hamstrings run from the back of the ishial tuberosity (pelvic bone) to
    just below the back of the knee. They are responsible for bending the
    knee and assisting the gluteal muscles to extend the hip. These muscles
    are very important to stretch because, when tight, they make it nearly
    impossible to sit up straight. People who do not sit with an erect posture
    run the risk of early onset of degenerative disc disease and neck pain.
    Tight hamstring muscles are also associated with low back pain. One way
    to gently stretch hamstring muscles is to lie on the back and grasp the leg
    behind the knee with the hip flexed to 90 degrees and the knee bent.
    Attempt to straighten the knee with the toes pointed back toward you.
    –Hold 30 seconds
    –1-2 times per day
