for those who use mobility aids, what were some signs that you needed them?

      cane user and partial wheelchair user-- my knees started giving out on me at work, especially near the end of the week. I have a job I have to stand a lot during, and my knees and ankles would slide out and cause a lot of pain. I realized that if I used a wheelchair outside of work and a cane during work, I could cope better throughout the week

      SI belt to keep my hips in place, especially if I have a lot of walking or sitting in a vehicle. If I don't by the end of the day & for the next few days I'm using a cane.

        @Atusin that sounds like something i should try. factory work is really hard on my legs but if i tried using a wheelchair outside of work i bet i could manage it better and actually make it through the whole work week
