Most men keep quite a bit in their wallets. Money, credit cards, bank cards, photos, reminders, id’s, the list goes on and on. A wallet can get stuffed pretty quickly.
However, for their health they should really slim it down.
Well they most likely keep their wallet in their back pocket. When they sit down, the wallet presses on the piriformis muscle, which puts pressure on the sciatic nerve that runs down their leg.
Over time, sitting on anything, whether it’s a wallet on something else, can irritate the sciatic nerve, which causes severe pain in the lower back and legs.
