How to Get the Right Crutches You Need


30 Nisan 5772

Fractures HURT and so do the wrong crutches. Here's an FYI from a medical professional who contributed to today's blogpost:

"Please be aware that crutches must be the correct measurements for YOUR measurements! And you must use them correctly or you may cause yourself injury. Here is just 1 link to info on the measurements you need for your crutches as well as links to their proper use. I see too many people with obviously incorrect crutch lengths! So if/when you get the crutches, go there armed [no pun intended] with a measuring tape and your own necessary measurements.
