World Stroke Day with the March of Dimes
October 24, 2017 | By Urban Poling
Urban Poling is proud to have partnered with the March of Dimes
to promote physical activity to both prevent and rehabilitate from strokes.
We all know how important exercise is in staying fit and healthy
and it can be easy as putting one foot in front of the other and walking.
Why not add a pair of poles to your outings and at the same time
strengthen your core, improve your balance and get a better workout?
We are dedicating the entire month of October to stroke awareness and
invite you take a moment to view some inspiring stories and learn how our ACTIVATOR™ poles have helped many through their recovery process by providing the added stability and confidence to walk again.

Keep your poles more upright and in front of you. Lean forward slightly, and use the poles to help push you up the hill. If necessary, bend your elbows, but remember to transition back to the straight arm technique at the top of the hill
