What Can A Heavy Purse Do To Your Body And Health?

posted in Fashion
  • The bag is one of the favorite fashion accessories for women, but women often wear too heavy bags that might enrich the look and that are harmful to the health and to the body. Here’s what happens to your body when you wear heavy bag …

  • 1.Your natural behavior is changing
    One of the consequences of wearing one shoulder bag is disorder of posture. When the bag is located on one side of the body, does not allow the arm to move as much as need, while the other arm moves more. Many women have problems with posture over this.

  • 2.It causes back pains
    Considering that the entire weight of the bag is on a shoulder burden is placed asymmetrically, leading to disturbances in posture. Most of the people wear the bags in the dominant part of the body. The consequence of this is a greater development of the muscles of the dominant side.

  • This means that the back muscles have to compensate the weight, and that leads to a back pains. Wearing heavy bag can cause pain in the shoulder blade, as well as the muscles located in the neck. This can cause stiffness in the upper back, shoulders and neck. In some cases, it can lead to arthritis, especially if you are wearing a heavy burden on one side.

  • 3.Causes headaches
    In some cases, wearing a heavy burden on one side, can cause headaches. When muscles in the shoulders and neck writhing, it can cause pain in the back of the skull, and then extend to the front.

  • What can you do to reduce the harmful consequences?

    -Wear less stuff in the bag. The bag should never be more than a tenth of your body weight, and ideally not exceed 5 percent by weight.
    -Choose a bag with wide suspenders. The wide suspenders distributes weight wider and protects the part of the shoulders crossed nerves that go from hand to the neck.
    -Wear bag with handles.

  • -Adjust the length of handles in ideal position, so as not to affect the movement of your hands. If handles is too short, it will affect the way you sway your hands, while if it is too long, affects the way you move your hips.
    -Carry the bag on both shoulders alternately, so that will stress to both shoulders.
    -Observe the clothes. High heels and heavy bag is a bad combination.
    -Wear a backpack. When you wear a backpack, the weight is distributed evenly on both shoulders.
