Hiking poles are also known as trekking poles, hiking sticks, walking poles or nordic poles.  They are used to assist bushwalkers to maintain stability on rough terrain, and if used correctly can provide rhythm to the waking pace.  Hiking poles can reduce impact stress on legs and the lower joints –hips, knees and ankles.   Bush walkers tend to learn forward when carrying a pack, and this weight is born on a bent spine that can lead to neck and back pain.  Hiking poles promote a more erect posture that improves respiration and also straightens the spine so that they load can be carried more safely.

For the non-bushwalker, recent studies suggest that walking with poles can burn up to 20 percent more calories than regular walking.  Because you are using your arms and activating the upper body; this strengthens your upper body muscles, improves balance and coordination and cardio respiratory fitness.  Apart from improving your walking experience – just being outdoors can enhance your mood and emotional wellbeing.
