A Change of Hats !

I'd just like to put my 'Exercise Therapist' hat on for a moment...

I believe that there is great potential for Nordic Walking instructors who have the relevent qualifications and experience to work with people recovering from illness, operation and injury.

This is an area that I am particularly interested in and I have teamed up with my local Physiotherapy Clinic on a pilot project to work with clients who might benefit from using Nordic Walking poles. Yesterday I met with my first referred client and the experience was very positive.

I have previously spent 6 years working with exercise clients mainly in the over 60's age group, who between them had a whole host of medical issues and ailments (I have specialist qualifications in this area). I found the work to be very rewarding.

I would like to request feedback from anyone who has personal experience as a sufferer / patient in any of the following areas, who has found that Nordic Walking poles have helped them:

Balance instability, Osteoporosis, Painful joints, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Back Pain, Parkinson's Disease, Injury (sporting or otherwise) or any other medical condition for which Nordic Walking poles have been a benefit.

Please tell me your story and your experiences with your poles. Also please let me know if I can use your story as a testimonial in which case I will need your full name, town and country of residence.
