In the case of osteoarthritis of the hip, the use of a cane or crutch carried on the opposite side to the affected joint while you are out and about can have a beneficial effect on osteoarthritic pain and in preventing the deterioration of your joints.

They enable unloading body weight while walking: the joints bear less weight reducing the constraints which helps prevent further damage to lesions and thus reduce pain after exertion.
