Fact #1. In the early days of civilization, a walking stick was used as much for support as it was for protection. Shepherds, nomads, and early laborers would carry handmade sticks for stability along steep hills and rugged terrain. They would also carry these sticks for safeguarding against wild animals and would-be thieves.
Fact #2. The term cane emerged during the 16th century. It was a result of walking sticks being made out of bamboo, tropical grass, and several other types of reeds. The more common these canes became, the more the British aristocracy began to carry them as a reflection of fine breeding. Carrying a cane on one's right was considered an indication of wealth. If you were to carry a cane on your left, it was an indication of virtue.
Fact #3. The use of canes for mobility has increased dramatically over the past 100 years. Military veterans, in particular, are prone to walking with them as a result of lingering injuries, or other battle-related conditions. Today's options can be customized. Certain models are so advanced that they can accommodate a lot more patients' needs.
Fact #4. Using a walking cane on a regular basis helps your body redistribute its weight. This reduces the amount of stress placed on aching muscles. It also minimizes the pressure felt across your back. In the long run, using one will help you maintain an appropriate fitness regimen. Eventually, you may be able to walk short distances and attend social functions without the use of a walking aid.
Fact #5. Any type of ongoing joint problem has the potential to impact your balance and your posture. This may, in turn, result in chronic back pain, neck pain, or worse. The point being that the use of a cane should be considered more of a strength than a weakness.
