Get exercise while helping with balance and mobility - Stay mobile with Hiking Sticks

 

You don’t have to be a hiker to benefit from hiking poles. Walking with a pair of hiking poles can help with balance, mobility and reduce strain on the knees. It is also great exercise in general and can help increase arm tone and strength.

Neuropathy in left foot plays havoc with balance.

 

No walking aid seems to exist to relieve pain.
