Lonnie E. Shipe, M.A.   My Press Releases

I've smashed myself around, been on crutches, and broken a couple of bones when I was a kid. Jason Statham

When you are strong and your balance is good, you can swing your body between the crutches and land the strong leg in front of them, so you take a bigger step.  This is called "swing-through" gait.

To go up or down a curb using crutches - Try this first with another person nearby to steady you if needed.  Stand near the edge of the curb, and get your balance.

If you are going up, step up with your stronger leg first.  Then bring the crutches and your weaker or injured leg up to meet it. If you are going down, move the crutches down first.  Step down with your weaker leg first.  Then bring your stronger leg down to meet it. Remember "up with the good, and down with the bad" to help you lead with the correct leg.

Push straight down on the crutches for balance and to take weight off your injured leg.

Get your balance again before you start walking.

To use your crutches on stairs - Try this first with another person nearby to steady you if needed.

If the stairs have a good sturdy banister, you can hold the banister with one hand.  Put both crutches together and use them with the other hand.  If there is no banister or you do not think the banister is sturdy enough, use the crutches normally, holding one in each hand.

Stand near the edge of the stairs.  If you are going up, step up with your stronger leg first, then bring the crutches and your weaker or injured leg up to meet it.  If you are going down, move the crutches down first. Step down with your weaker leg first then bring your stronger leg down to meet it.  Repeat.

When you reach the level surface, get your balance again before you start walking.
