Using a Walking Stick
Walking sticks are generally light and transfer your weight to your wrist or forearm. Generally speaking, most walking sticks are used to aid light injuries or to improve balance but we also carry more robust quad canes and heavy duty walking sticks. As a rule of thumb, the height of a walking stick is usually about one half the user's height, wearing shoes.
Funky Walking Sticks
We have some dotty walking sticks and some fabulous designs of folding sticks. Our dress walking sticks offer elegance and beauty and we have a good range in our Luxury Walking Sticks section. So if you're looking for something a little bit different, we hope we have the right walking stick for you!
Walking Sticks for Arthritis Sufferers
If you suffer from Arthritis, particularly in your wrists and hands, then we recommend walking sticks with a comfort or contour grip. Both of these allow more weight to be distributed through the palm of your hand to mitigate pain as much as possible. You'll find these walking sticks above.
