hi syl, i got a stick through physio, a colapsable one you can buy these ffron lots of shope i bought a spare from clevelys for £5

you have to have the handle to the hight of you wrist. use it to the opposit to worst leg

when walking bring stick forward at same time as bad leg.

hope this helps.

Hi
I have a couple of the fold up ones, they are good because you can adjust the height to suit you plus you can put it in your handbag.
They do some pretty colourful ones, if you do a google shop search you will get lots come up, they are cheap to buy on the net. :goodluck1:
