Diane Kern, Physical Therapist:
Stand straight, use the poles! I don't know how many patients I've sent over to Jayah - the poles have been such a boon to some of my patients. They've been able to return to activities they thought were lost to them forever
Linda Buch, Syndicated Columnist, Author & owner of LJBalance.com
Jayah is one of the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to the why, how and where of walking and trekking poles. She is also a great teacher--clear in her explanations and directions.
Jerald R. Gerst, MD, MPH Physician specializing in treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries and injury prevention.
It's very important that those of us who use poles for balance and mobility (including myself) do so with correct technique. Those of us who use them for that reason tend to have decreased upper body strength and muscle tone and a higher incidence of degenerative changes of the neck and shoulder which can be aggravated by improper use.
Robert G. Macdonald, M.D., FRCP, FACC, FSCAI
Exercise is important for maintaining bone density, building muscle strength and enhancing cardiovascular fitness. Poles can provide stability and a sense of security to allow patients to more quickly resume a walking program.
