Many physical therapists and other health care providers recommend anatomically correct canes, or orthopedic canes, to patients who suffer from arthritis or carpel tunnel syndrome.
There are many resources for anatomically correct canes, both in the United States and overseas. Generally hand carved from wood or made from metal, they are a popular item in today's aging world and are offered by almost all cane providers.
When you order anatomically correct canes, most stores and websites will prompt you to choose either the left or right hand, as each has its own specific grip. Unless your physical therapist has told you otherwise, you should use a cane on the side opposite of your weak or injured leg. So if you are having trouble with your right foot, choose a left-handed cane, even if your predominant hand isn';t left.
Fortunately for those who are interested in aesthetic appeal of their canes, anatomically correct canes are of the most attractive. The designs and complex artwork involved in the craft is quite often breathtaking!
Always keep in mind when searching for anatomically correct canes, or any other walking aid, that strength and durability are the main concern. If the cane and handle fits perfectly, is comfortable, and the whole cane itself is sturdy, then you can expect a lifetime of support and confidence in your stride.
The advantages to anatomically correct canes go beyond comfort and fashion, as most of them direct the weight of the user over the palm. Having your weight rest directly over the shaft of the cane gives you better support. And remember that is the main reason for anatomically correct canes and other walking aids!
If you are planning on giving one of the popular anatomically canes as a gift, make sure you know the appropriate length of shaft the user will need, as well as which hand he or she will be using to hold the cane!
