If you put bricks in your purse to make it as heavy as you can, you might not want to wear it on just one shoulder.
I know habits are hard to break and you need your hands free (kind of the point of a purse, right?), but when you put that added weight on one (1) shoulder instead of equally distributed across the upper back (or not at all), it pulls down on that side of your upper body.
This causes you to lean more to one side, putting added and unnecessary weight and strain on that side of your body, which only adds to the body imbalance you may be experiencing if you haven’t been under chiropractic care.
If you have been under chiropractic care, then this sort of strain on one side of your body on a repeated basis will undoubtedly contribute to you losing the restored alignment of your spine, causing you to need another adjustment sooner than later.
And as you know, when your spine is out of alignment, due to a vertebral subluxation (a bony misalignment of your C1 or C2 vertebra that causes stress and tension on the nerves exiting the spinal column), this will eventually affect your entire body i.e. organs, glands, blood vessels, nerves, muscles, and joints.
