Victoria Beckham just picked up Glamour's Woman of the Decade Award and now doctors are trying to steal her shine!
Posh is being blamed for causing women to have torn muscles and inflamed shoulder tendons by popularizing the heavy handbag trend!
London-based physiotherapist Sammy Margos, who has dubbed the negative health effects from carrying hefty purses in the crook of one's elbow "Poshitis", explains:
"Women may think they are following a catwalk trend but they are storing up trouble. We have seen a huge increase in shoulder and neck problems and killer heels can add to the pressure on posture. We have seen handbags which weighed a huge 1½ stone [21 pounds]. It can cause repetitive strain injury and pain in the shoulder and neck."
A 21-pound bag is pretty cray, but we don't think we've ever seen Victoria carrying a purse that heavy.
Does Harper count? LOLz!
