Chiropractors often point out that body imbalances can exert a ripple effect that can have far-reaching consequences. For instance, leg-length discrepancy (one leg is significantly shorter than the other) can alter posture to the point where pain arises from soft-tissue stresses. With this in mind, it should also make sense to patients that something as seemingly innocuous as carrying a loaded wallet in a back pocket can have the same effect.

The fact is that, if your wallet raises one side of your bottom higher than the other as you sit, it can throw your spine out of alignment and exert undue pressure on back muscles. If changing wallet location does not relieve pain, see the chiropractor.

P.S. Chiropractors are known for their ability to find the sources of pain and correct them rather than merely treating the symptoms.
