How to Walk on Crutches

Walking technique

When learning to walk on crutches for the first time it may seem a little daunting and in the beginning, everything may be more difficult.

However, with practice most people can quickly gain confidence and learn how to use a waking aid safely.


If you have never used a crutch before, you should not do so without instructions, and ideally a trained assistant.


At first you may find it more comforting to have a friend or family member nearby to help steady you and give you support. There are several walking patterns that may be used with crutches to accelerate the healing injuries and allow mobility.


The correct pattern should be guided by a health professional. They will also advise on the level of variation on weight-bearing that the affected leg can tolerate;





When walking with crutches, keep the handles facing forwards and your arms close by your sides.


Walk only in well-lit rooms and install a nightlight along the route between your bedroom and the bathroom. Whilst walking, do not try to move too quickly or to cover too long a distance with each step.


When standing from a chair, move to the front of the seat and arrange the crutches handles to form a ‘H’ shape. Put one hand on the chair and the other on the handle of the crutches (do not place your arm through the cuff of the crutch!). Slide your affected leg forwards and push up into a standing position. Finally, place each hand into the crutches one at a time and separate the crutches in front of you.


When using stairs, if there is a handrail, hold on to it and put the crutch in your other hand.


The general rule for stairs is:-


Going Upstairs – Good leg, bad leg, crutch

Going Downstairs – Crutch, bad leg, good leg.
