Crutches – eeek!

Hey guys!

Hope your all well. So today at physio I’ve been given crutches, I knew my walking was getting steadily worse but it still took me by surprise. I had Lemtrada in Feb and it’s been a rather rocky road so far.

Anyway, I’m all over the place with these crutches! I don’t think I really took in all the instructions from the physio. Does anyone know of good videos online that I can check out?

@rainbow , if they’re forearm crutches, this might help :-

Physio gave me an elbow crutch and with it I am also all over the place. I have ataxia (lack of co ordination) which makes managing a crutch a tad unpredictable and I have, in the last few days, been advised to try a rollator.

Thanks for the video @stumbler, yeah its forearm crutches.

@watsoncraig i know who would have thought it would be so complicated lol I felt like a right muppet not understanding. I hope you get on better with your rollator. But think im getting there, hope so anyway. Ive got a review in two weeks. I was planning on going back to work next week as well. Not sure now, will need to see how it all goes.

Thanks guys!
