My mother is 67, she has moderate osteoarthritis in her knees and severe osteoarthritis in her left hip. She also has osteopenia. I think she needs to start using a cane but she won't hear it. There is so many studies that show that using a cane is tremendously beneficial in OA patients. She was referred to an ortho surgeon and has her first appointment coming up. I don't want to tell him in front of her that I think a cane would help because I know that would irritate her. from your experience do you think there is a good chance he will tell her to use a cane?
