Next time one of your clients come in complaining about pain in their neck or shoulder, take a look at the bag they’re carrying.
While there are many knapsacks that might make the dubious claim of being anatomically-friendly, many people are bent under the weight of shoulder bags with skinny straps digging into their shoulders, or carrying briefcases that are over stuffed and unwieldy, or, even worse, carrying both, and more, at once.
