August 4, 2006, Newsletter Issue #2: Walkers with Orthopedic Problems

Tip of the Week

People with orthopedic problems can benefit from Nordic walking. If you have problems with your knees or other joints that make fitness walking difficult or painful, you may be able to do Nordic walking with less pain. Using the Nordic walking poles distributes your weight so that some of the pressure is taken off your joints, thus relieving the pain in your knees, hips, or ankles. Nordic walking is more stable than basic fitness walking because the poles are extra contact points so people with balance problems can walk more comfortably. With Nordic walking you can get the health and fitness benefits of walking without irritating sore joints. Of course, you should check with your doctor before starting this or any other exercise program.
