The next thing to consider when choosing a walking stick is its height.
Too High? Too Low?
If you are using a walking stick that is too short, you may end up slouching or losing balance easily as it affects your entire body posture to stand or walk. If the walking stick is too high, you may start to feel sore on your ankles and shoulder as it also affects your posture to stand and walk upright.
Finding the right height is no rocket science, all you need to do is to make sure that the lowest point of the top of handle is aligned with your wrist.
Finally, to complete the basics of a comfortable walking stick – let’s have a look at the handle.
Having sufficient grip.
When the handle is too small, you end up focusing on grabbing the handle correctly than to focus on the walking or navigating. This might cause you to lose grip of the walking stick and dropping it instead.
If you have arthritis or joint pains, it is recommended that you choose bigger handles that provides more comfort for your hand.
