Here is what Judy said about her experience with Nordic Pole Walking. “I love it! And I really feel my posture is getting much better because of it. I go to a chiropractor once a month because of my 3 protruding discs in my lower back, scoliosis & tension in my Maximus Glutinous & neck. I went just after the 3 rd. lesson & he noticed a difference in my neck & scoliosis. He was pleased & very encouraging. I also like the fact that a 30 min. walk 3 times a week is so doable & so beneficial.”
