If you are recovering from injury or surgery, have a condition such as Parkinsons, MS, Arthritis or a chronic disease, walking can be difficult. This in turn can lead to being less active and mobile than you would prefer.
Nordic Walking may help. Using Nordic Walking poles combined with the correct technique reduces pressure on the lower body, making walking a lot easier.
By using the upper body when walking, the load is spread across more muscle groups and enables you to take a longer stride. Nordic Walking also helps to promote correct gait and posture and improves stability.
The regular, alternating arm swing used when Nordic Walking also promotes an increased “torso rotation”, which has proven to be beneficial for relieving muscle tension.
Making walking easier may just encourage you to be that little bit more active, mobile and healthy
