Three years ago I was given a gift of a pair of Nordic Walking Sticks after a hip repair surgery. During the 3 years my pain continued until a recent hip replacement surgery in January this year. During the years the poles have been a true life saver. Unfortunately 4 weeks ago i was tipped off a tall chair, cracking my pelvis after the fall on a tile floor. And again my walking sticks are a life saver! Thank you!
