How to Use a Cane

February 24, 2012


If you have arthritis in both knees, hold the cane in whichever hand feels most natural for you.  If your osteoarthritis effects one knee worse than the other, hold the cane on the side of the least amount of knee pain.  Move the cane with every step.  Your doctor or physical therapist should teach you how to do this.  The cane stays in place as the unaffected leg swings forward.  Move the cane when you move the leg that hurts most.
