use care with crutches...

Posted by Ellen J. on 5/12/02 at 09:10 (083602)

Hi all,
I have a friend who got P.F. about the same time I did and she is on crutches/wheelchair for the moment. She told me that the crutches made her P.F. worse due to the pounding when her feet landed each time. I think she's got the hang of it now and maybe the crutches are not aggravating her feet anymore, but I thought I would let you know just so you can look into the best way to use crutches so that they help rather than hinder anyone's progress.
