Canes/walking sticks

Canes/walking sticks

Hello, I live in Georgia there is many hills and I'm noticing that I'm having many issues with my knees and hips ankles and toes and bottom of my feets so I'm scared of walking I'm holding on to things because it seems that I'm stumbling and I'm in pain in those areas so my question is do I ask my rheumatologist for a prescription for a cane or do I purchase one myself?

Love my walker-rollator. I stack flakes of hay on the seat when I feed my goats. Don't think that is the original intent of the walker but it keeps me upright on rough terrain and when done I can turn around and sit to ease my back. I just wish they made all terrain walkers as wider tires would be a big help.

I love my roller-walker too. Especially in crowds. Can sit on it when I stop to talk with people.

Love your use of canes. I definitely have to get a better one. Perhaps a cane wardrobe to go with my mood or occasion. Please let me know if you come across an all terrain waller.

It is great, sadly by the time I got it I was already so crippled by pain that I couldn't make it to the shops even with the walker. I'm slowly building up my activity by swimming but I'm too afraid of the state I'll get myself in to try walking to the shops again. I'll get there I'm sure but its not as easy as it seems. The wheelchair I hope will give me some chance of mobility. Tho I'm aware if I self propel it will be murder on my hands x
