4 Benefits of a Walking Stick

1. Aerobic Workout

When you carry a walking stick on your stroll you add in an exercise with your arm giving you a more full workout!

2. Balance & Stability

Whether you have a rubber ferrule or a metal spike, a walking stick grips the ground and becomes a steady shoulder to lean on.

3. Proper Posture

Holding a walking stick encourages your back to stay upright and helps strengthen your muscles to keep it that way.

4. Ease Joints

And finally a walking stick helps relieve the weight on your lower back, hips, and knees helping with arthritis and chronic pain.
