    Dear Mr. beI live in Johannesburg South Africa and found your video amazing. I am a youngish 74 year old and walk unaided. I have had bilateral hip and knee replacements. My lower back and ankles give me pain when walking and I have to slow down. I take paracetamol when necessary.Can the Nordic Walkers only be purchased in Israel? Would appreciate a reply.
