Lakelands Clinic

Do you walk with a single crutch or a stick? It is important that you are using your crutch correctly to help stabilise your balance, and reduce risk of asymmetry through the legs, hips and lower back as this may lead to further problems or injuries.

As shown in my video, the most important step is that the crutch goes in the OPPOSITE HAND to the injured/weakened side. This helps maintain a normal walking pattern and reduce the risk of imbalance. The second step is to put the crutch down at the same time as your injured side. This will help you balance out your weight more evenly and help reduce your limp.

Have a look at my video to see for yourself the difference, and check whether you are doing it correctly

We can see you in our super clean clinic, or if you are self-isolating with your pain, injury or concern during these difficult times. Physiotherapy is considered an essential medical service and by helping people with their acute injury, chronic pain and rehab, we are able to take some pressure off our doctors and hospitals. If you are self-isolating or would prefer to stay home, we can offer you our Home Visit Service, our innovative Virtual Physio Consult or Telehealth Physio Consult. We will still deliver the same quality service to help you understand your problem and reach your health goal.
