Urban Poling Improves Quality of Life for Cancer Patients


Urban Poling is a growing wellness trend that combines specialized poles with walking

Urban Poling Help Survivors Recover from Cancer and Cancer Treatment

Walking poles are an excellent choice for people recovering from cancer and the cancer treatments they have received. The poles improve your balance and posture while walking. They allow you to walk further with less fear of falling and less stress on your joints. By using your upper body as well as your lower body, you will burn more calories which will assist you in weight loss. The swinging motion of your arms is particularly good exercise for the mobility of your shoulders. Shoulder restriction is so often a problem for breast cancer patients who have had surgery or radiation in the area.

Proven Benefits of Walking Poles

Evidence based studies have indicated the effectiveness of walking poles on shoulder function in breast cancer survivors. Other proven beneficial effects are:

  • Self-esteem
    Anne Edgell-Kennedy, Clinic Director of
    LifeMark/Centric Health in Fonthill ON
    instructs a patient in proper use of urban poling
  • Social interaction
  • Improvement in pain management
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Quality of life
  • Functional independence
  • Core strength
  • Upper extremity mobility and strength
  • Muscular endurance
  • Posture, stability and balance
  • Exercise tolerance
  • Personal exertion limits

Ensure Proper Height of Poles

It is important that the poles are the right height for you. Stand up straight with your elbows at your sides and bend them to 90 degrees (an "L" shape) and then adjust your poles so you are holding the handles while your arms stay in this position. A physiotherapist can help get you properly fitted and help you with your poling technique. It can take some practice to feel comfortable using the poles.

  4. When I was told by my doctor I had only 6 months before my lungs
    cancer could mean a stroke or heart attack I was beyond devastated.
    After reading the cancer cannabis oil miracle cure, I had to contact
    Rick Simpson on email:
    beforemedicalservice@yahoo.com

    which I eventually made order for
    the medication which arrive within 3 days of order.
    I started treatment and implementing what you teach I was noticing
    almost instant results! It's been 89 days and my lungs cancer is
    finally under control, no matter what I eat or do with my life.
    My doctor, aside from being totally confused by my recovery has said I
    am now no longer a lungs cancer sufferer anymore, and it's all thanks
    to what you showed me.
    Thank you, I am forever grateful.
