Walking Sticks For Young Adults

Tuesday, 17 December 2019  |  Olivia

We associate walking sticks with older people, but young people also get injured and suffer from illnesses. Young adults with walking difficulties deserve the support a cane could provide, so what's standing in the way? 

Do Young People Use Walking Sticks?

Walking sticks are often associated with older people, even though many younger people use them. Embarrassment and awkwardness can lead young people to try and struggle through without a cane, or end up going out in public less often. Thankfully, with our range of stylish and appealing walking canes, this doesn't need to be the case.

Why Should Young People Use Walking Sticks?

There are many different reasons why a young person might need a cane. Some are temporary, for instance during recovering from surgery or a broken leg. Some are permanent, like juvenile arthritis or multiple sclerosis. 

Although for many it may be possible to lean on friends and family, using a walking stick is a far better option. Not only does it grant independence and relief from pain, but depending on the condition it can help speed your recovery. 

What If I Feel Embarrassed?

Don't feel embarrassed! Not only are walking sticks symbolic of strength, authority and stability but they can be a striking, unique accessory. If you need any reassurance, it might be worth taking a look at the celebrities who have recently been seen with walking sticks, including Jessie J, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, and Scott Disck. 

Are There Walking Sticks Suitable For Young People? 

Absolutely, yes! Dull and bleak canes are banned from this list! Many young cane users are shocked and amazed by how many compliments they get on their statement canes, and an unusual walking stick can be a great conversation starter.
