Why to use Walking sticks and what to check before buying?
Walking sticks offer extra support while walking or standing to help your balance. Using a walking stick can boost your confidence and encourage you to exercise regularly while making walking much less painful and more stable.
You can buy good-quality walking sticks online with quick delivery so you can start getting around independently ASAP. Prices vary but be wary of buying ridiculously cheap walking sticks as they may not be strong enough to support your weight or be as reliable as a better quality model.
There are different types of walking sticks to choose from, so it would be helpful to speak to your GP or medical specialists to find out which sort of stick would be the most appropriate for your needs.
Make sure you buy a walking stick that is the correct height for you, or choose an adjustable walking stick. There are walking sticks with three or four feet so they can stand up, or there are folding walking sticks that you can fold away when not in use. Some walking sticks have seats that allow you to stop and rest when needed.
