Does anyone use walking poles to help them balance? Does it increased your confidence to be more active? Has it contributed to your vestibular recovery?

Yes. I bought a set of poles a couple of years ago in order to begin practice walking. It was a huge help and got me started on the recovery process. I started using them on a school track, where I could stop when needed to rest on the bleachers. Eventually I became more confident and ventured out to a nearby park. The poles, or a walking stick, are a wonderful grounding aide.

Yes I use poles when I feel unbalanced. They give me confidence and help me get in my cardio.

Yeah, My uncle used them, I would recommend getting some cheap ones and seeing how you like them. if you find them indispensable then save up for a nice light pair.

I don't see anything wrong with using them. At the very least, they should always be in the house.
