Crutches are supports that help your child walk when his leg or foot is injured.
Here are the instructions your child can follow to use crutches.
Using the hand on the side of the injured leg, hold both crutches together by the grips. Use the other hand to push up from the chair or bed. Stand on the good leg. Your child should first stand with good balance and bring the crutches into position on each side before starting to walk.
Using the hand on the side of the injured leg, hold both crutches together by the grips. Hold onto the chair or bed with the other hand and lower the body slowly. Unless your child is allowed to put some weight on the injured leg, he should keep the injured leg off the ground and keep the weight of the body on the good leg.
When going through a doorway, your child should be sure there is enough room to allow his feet and crutches to clear the doorframe and door. Ask someone to hold the door open if possible. If your child is by himself, he can block it from swinging closed with his shoulder or a crutch tip.
