how do you properly use crutches? Answered


If you have been given crutches for an actual medical condition or injury (instead of as a prop for a play or video), you should have been shown how to use them before you left.

Hands through the arm holders at the top, hold on to the hand grips. Put the most of your weight on the opposite leg you have injured and use the crutches to support your body instead of the other leg.
