Re: Anybody use a cane? (2 months post-op calcaneal osteotomy/tendon transfer, PTTD)
Two reasons cane goes on opposite side:
It's natural to swing your right arm and left foot at the same time, that's how babies and four-footed animals get around.
More importantly, you're more stable if you have a support on either side of your body, rather than two supports on one side.
