Fat wallet syndrome, also known as wallet neuritis, is a neuromuscular condition in which the pressure mounts on gluteal muscles and nerves, and travels from the lower back to the lower limbs.

 

Fat wallet syndrome can be easily prevented by keeping the wallet in the front pocket. If you are already suffering from it, experts recommend several ways to mitigate and cure.

The non-invasive means include using anti-inflammatory medications, stretching and strengthening the muscles in the region. Shockwave therapy to ease stiffness in the region, and conditioning of the glute muscles through stretches and exercises like clamshells and fire hydrant workout.

In severe cases, surgical decompression of muscle and nerve is prescribed.
