We post this guide from time to time and update it. But our two favourite video guides haven’t changed this time.
For a calming, super clinical guide to getting around on crutches we love
where the rather strict Shiyun shows you the ropes, or sticks.
For something super cute we love this one, which was a school project for someone which has been viewed 250k times, mostly by us…
When approaching the stairs, your mind can go blank. I always remembered this piece of ‘fire and brimstone’ advice given to me by my super-sincere Swiss physiotherapist:
“The good go up to Heaven, but the bad go down to Hell!!”
Before you think I might have done something terrible to deserve this advice, she went on to explain that:
“the good foot leads on the way up, followed by the bad foot and crutches;
the bad foot and crutches lead on the way down, followed by the good foot.”
Easy to remember. Good luck Hoppers!
