wallet neuropathy

(名詞) 錢包神經疾病:由坐在置於褲子後口袋內鼓鼓的錢包上所造成的腰痛。neuropathy 意為「神經疾病」。

wallet neuropathy 亦叫做 wallet neuritis (錢包神經炎)、wallet sciatica (錢包坐骨神經痛)、fat wallet syndrome (胖錢包症候群) 或 hip-pocket syndrome (臀部口袋症候群)。

Physiotherapists have coined the term 'wallet-neuropathy' for the lower back pain caused by men sitting down (such as when driving or in the office) on wallets always carried in their back trouser pocket.

The condition is triggered by the wallet pressing on sciatic nerves in the back and can lead to pain or numbness in the lower leg, ankle or foot.
