In general, with a two-legged beast, "opposite leg" and "other leg" are the same.
Student or Learner
Please help me with this one sentence. Thank you.
Using trekking poles while walking reduces the pressure strain on the opposite leg by about 20%.
In the above sentence, can I switch the word "opposite" to "other"? Regard that the sentence is not in any context.
"Opposite" seems the better word to me. The leg opposite the side where the pole is being applied at the moment.
