Avoid shoulder injury – for women

Most women don’t realize this, but a heavy purse can cause shoulder injuries. You can develop frozen shoulder or pain in the neck, scapula area and/or around the deltoids. Big purses are in right now and they are very cool, but you don’t have to load them up with everything in your house. Leave the kitchen sink at home, right? One easy fix is to empty out your extra change. Change can add up and add weight to your wallet or coin purse. If you have books or other larger items that you need to bring with you, put them in a separate bag or tote. Don’t carry everything on one shoulder. Try to distribute the weight of your purse and your other stuff evenly, use both shoulders if you have too. Get a rolly bag if you always have extra stuff to carry.

Have a great summer and keep those shoulders healthy.
