Split the load.

Divide groceries into two lighter bags to distribute the weight more evenly. If carrying just one bag, alternate sides. Always carrying a bag, purse or briefcase on one side can put strain on your neck, shoulder and lower back – switch it up.

If you feel pain during or after carrying a heavy load, Arbutus Physiotherapy & Health Centre can help.
