“I have had 7 major spine surgeries for congenital spinal stenosis and two major fracture dislocations of L3 and L2. Now fused from T9 to S2 and using a body brace. In my right leg, there is no sensation, no proprioception and loss of quad and hip flexion power. I am able to walk using poles for 3 hours per day at 14 months post op.”

Winter Poling

When walking on snow covered surfaces, remove the rubber tips to expose the carbide tip which will provide better traction.  Add snow baskets to prevent the poles from sinking deep into the snow.
