Best Walking Sticks for Arthritis 2019

Friday, 6 September 2019

Suffering from arthritis and limited mobility can be a difficult combination of ailments to deal with. If you find that using a walking stick exacerbates pain and discomfort in your hands, you're most likely using the wrong type of handle.

So what type of handle can you use, and how much more comfortable will it really be to use? Find out which type of handle is best for arthritis by reading this article, where our walking stick experts have selected some of the best options around.

Which Handle Types Are Best for Arthritis?

Hand conditions like arthritis reduce the strength of your grip, so it's important that you choose a handle that's easy to hold and fits well in your hand. Ergonomic, Fischer, and relax-grip handles have been designed for exactly this purpose, taking the strain off your joints for a more comfortable grip. All three of these handle types are for orthopaedic use and have been crafted so they contour to your hand, allowing you to remain comfortable for longer periods of time. Most of these handles are designed to fit either your left or right hand, so make sure to choose the right version for you.
