Stabilization: Your Foundation
Prolonged pressure can contribute to Piriformis Syndrome, also called "Wallet Sciatica" and "Credit-carditis".
All movement originates from your spine; it is the core movement axis that controls and stabilizes your body. Therefore, just like building a house, the integrity of the structure is dependent upon the integrity of the foundation. Your foundation is made up of the muscles that attach and wrap around your spine and joints. Without this “balanced” foundation your body will be unstable, subject to injury, and not able to perform to its maximum capability. An unbalanced foundation over time will cause structural wear and tear on the joints and spine starting with aches and pains and eventually affecting physical mobility. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) can be caused by sitting on a wallet. DVT causes 200,000 deaths annually in the USA.
Sitting on a bulky wallet can negatively affect your spinal alignment over time.
