Managing your weight with these shoulder bags
While living in the digital age, it’s very much possible to choose style over usefulness. Without giving it a second thought, we will purchase the fancy looking purse or handbag over the practical and functional option, which can lead to shoulder pain.
Hanging that heavy bag on a shoulder can cause your natural gait to be thrown off (by interfering with your arm swing), your center of gravity will shift to the side, and your bag will also cause your upper trapezius muscles to become overactive and stiff.
Below are simple three tips you can try and reduce the adverse effects of carrying a shoulder bag.
Reduce the content of the bag
This may seem like a common one, lessening the load that you carry on daily can importantly relief the strain you place on your shoulders and neck. Consider doing a weekly inventory of your purse to see what you need or don’t need.
Change your bag on your other shoulder
It may seem tough for one to get used to as you likely have developed muscle memory and subsequent tension on the side you carry your bag on, but switching to another shoulder can help balance the load, and decrease the strain and asymmetry on your body.
Use a multipurpose shoulder bag
Try using a bag with different strap choice. Changing between cross-body style, on the shoulder, and holding the bag as a clutch can offer rest and comfort to those often overused, upper trapezius muscles.
