Since the hand bag is small and can only carry a few items, this type of bag is very suitable for people with back pain. However, carrying it in your hand can cause your shoulders to drop to only one side.
How to wear: Free your hands and clip the hand bag under the armpit. To avoid putting strain on one shoulder, switch sides from time to time.
The bigger the tote bag, the worse it will affect your health. Its heaviness and the fact that you can only carry it on one side can cause imbalance and something known as falling shoulder syndrome. This happens after long-term weight exposure on your shoulder damages the nerve, and one nerve gets lower than the other.
How to wear: You’re better off resisting the urge to fill your tote bag to the fullest. Lightweight and side-swapping bags can help you avoid muscle and nerve strain.
Briefcase bags became popular as a way to carry your laptop and work documents in a stylish way. But all of this can make this bag heavier than ever. Therefore, carrying it by the handle can strain your arms, neck and back.
How to wear: Choose a briefcase bag with a strap. With it, you can carry the bag on your body to distribute the weight more evenly. Also, when you’re on your way to work, put it down so your shoulders can rest.
Bag with top handle
Bags with top handles are usually made of sturdy materials and are usually worn on the elbow. This means that when carried like this, the bag can often be too far from the body, putting pressure on the neck and shoulders.
How to wear: To relieve neck and shoulder pain, you can periodically carry a bag with an upper handle under your armpit like a purse.
Although this bag is designed to be worn across the body, most women carry it on one shoulder. And since crossbody bags often have longer straps, they sit too low. This condition can lead to upper back and neck pain.
How to wear: Wear as high as possible and at body level. Switch shoulders from time to time to apply even pressure.
Backpacks are the best bag to use to avoid back pain, but it also comes with a “best practice” guide. Choosing a backpack with straps that are too thin, worn just below one shoulder, or hung too low can lead to injury and long-term back problems.
How to wear: Backpacks with wider straps are the best way to better distribute weight. Also, remember to always carry it under both shoulders and place it as high and as close to your back as possible.
Storage bags are often used to store our clothes and sports equipment or as weekend travel luggage. This makes this type of bag extremely heavy and dangerous for your spine. Luckily for us, most handbags have a strap and using it is essential – but it’s important not to carry it under one shoulder. When you do this move, it can pull your spine out of the way, as you’ll be putting all your weight on one side of your body.
How to wear: Ideally, it will be better if you choose a tote bag with wheels. But if you already have one without them, wear it as high as you can and change the shoulders it wears as often as possible.
Portable mini bag
Portable mini handbags are a trend from the 90s just back. As you can hold it by holding it in your hand, it can increase elbow, wrist and hand strain. It can also change your way of life.
How to wear: If you’re looking for a small bag, try swapping your portable mini bag for a nice little bag. You can carry this bag closer to your body and free your arms, shoulders and hands from straining.
While bags with chain straps can give a stylish touch to your look, it’s not the best thing for your body. Metallic material can be quite painful for your shoulder, as it can start to get embedded in the shoulder over time.
How to wear: To ease shoulder pain, try to wear it horizontally and switch sides from time to time.
