When it’s time to attack stairs; I have my own distinct style. I like to take two stairs at a time. I’ve decided at the age of 65 I’m not gonna change my style. However, your physical therapist would probably gasp if they saw my technique, so please don’t emulate it:)
I’ve made a new YouTube video showing you the Wrong way to attack steps on forearm crutches.
Climbing stairs puts so much force on your forearm crutches and is not the time to wonder if your crutch will snap on you! If you’re not comfortable with your current forearm crutches give me a call or shoot me an email and we can talk about your options.
