As an MT driver for nearly 30 years, I was recently diagnosed with a rare carcinoma. Luck would have it, part of it is in my pelvis and I managed to figure out that driving with a clutch was a major (Literal) pain in the assteroid.

Switching from MT to DCT, the car no longer hurts me.

I don't know how many others have similar back pains - and we don't even realize it, but the clutch is beating us up. Bet you 6MT guys never thought this one through!

As for the other advice, many years ago I started wearing swat/cargo pants and my wallet in the magazine pocket (thigh). This has helped tremendously. Try that first!
Never drive with your wallet in your back pocket, It messes up your back and your leather. The pivot pull out door pocket is perfect for your wallet.
