Is Your Purse Causing You Pain?

Large handbags are great. They look great and you can fill them with everything you could possibly need when you are away from home. That big handbag stuffed to the nines might be more than fashionable. It might be causing you some serious shoulder pain.

The size of the bag really isn't the problem, it is all the stuff you stuff into it. While the folks at WebMD might not be fashionistas they have got your back, er . . . I mean shoulders, covered on this one. Here are ways to cope with the shoulder pain caused by the big bag:

  • If you carry a heavy purse, alternate it between both shoulders.
  • Switch your handbags so that you're not carrying a big purse every day.
  • When you're shopping for a big bag choose one with wider straps, which helps distribute weight over a broader area of your shoulder.
  • If you have to carry a lot of stuff, it might be a good idea to invest in a very fashionable backpack.
