What is the correct height for a walking stick?

A walking stick which is the wrong height can cause back and shoulder problems, as well as uncomfortable joint pain. If your walking stick is too long, it will force the shoulder unnaturally high, whilst a stick that is too short will force the user to stoop and develop back pain.

The answer to measuring and fitting a walking stick correctly is not determined by how tall a person is but by the distance between their hand and the ground.

To measure someone (or yourself) for a walking stick – stand with weight evenly on both feet, looking straight ahead and with arms relaxed by your sides. You then need to measure from the floor to the prominent bone of the wrist. This is the length of walking stick required.

Please note taking a measurement is by far the most accurate way of sizing yourself for a walking stick because everybody’s arms are different lengths! However here is a rough sizing guide:

If you’re between 150-160cm in height – approx stick measurement 74cm and 79cm
If you’re between 160-170cm in height – approx stick measurement 81cm and 86cm
If you’re between 170-180cm in height – approx stick measurement 89cm and 96cm
If you’re between 180-190cm in height – approx stick measurement 99cm and 101cm

If you are measuring for a walking pole – stand with your arms at your side and measure the distance from your elbow to the floor.  The walking pole should be between 15-20cm higher than your elbow.
