A member has let me know that he has found the use of nordic walking poles very beneficial. They help him balance and have therefore improved his mobility. One big advantage is that they are, in his words, “infinitely adjustable” so can be adjusted to suit your height.
So what are nordic walking poles? I’m not sure they are that much different from normal hiking poles, which might give you the same benefit. One point is that the base of the pole is a 45degree wedge which is intended to help propel you forwards. They are specifically intended for walking on more or less level ground.
