How To Use A Walking Cane

A common question that we get around here is: How do I use a walking cane? You’d think the answer would be intuitive, but it’s not! Generally speaking, walking canes are used for basic, step-by-step support. They’re not designed to be used for heavy, full-body support, but they do offer balance and stability for those with minor leg problems.

WikiHow has a good article explaining the proper use and sizing of canes. It’s worth a read.
