Choosing the Right Crutches for You
Standard underarm crutches are also called axillary crutches(‘axillary’ meaning they relate to the armpit). These crutches are typically used in the United States while recovering from leg injuries, like a sprained ankle.
Some people consider these crutches best for short-term users because they are easy to learn and readily available. Compared to forearm crutches, axillary crutches require less upper body strength.
However, not everyone finds these crutches comfortable to use. They can make your hands, wrists, and underarms sore due to the pressure exerted during use. Adding grips and using proper form can help combat this problem.
Improper use, such as drooping your body weight onto your armpits when fatigued, compresses your axillary nerve and can lead to axillary nerve dysfunction (shoulder numbness or weakness). Learning how to properly fit and use your crutches can help you avoid this damaging condition.
If you decide that underarm crutches are the best fit for you, you may want folding crutches. They are easier to travel with and can be stored under the table if you’re out at a restaurant or busy while on-the-go.
Forearm crutches, sometimes referred to as elbow crutches, have a cuff that goes around your forearm (and sometimes elbow or wrist) to offer support. These are more commonly used in Canada and Europe. In the U.S., forearm crutches are typically recommended for long-term or permanent disabilities, but more people are starting to use them for short-term injuries as well.
These crutches typically require more practice before users master how to use them. They also require more upper body strength, compared to axillary crutches. The good news is that once you master forearm crutches stairs and uneven terrain are much more manageable.
If you’re looking for comfort, forearm crutches might be the right solution. Many people find these crutches more comfortable to use. They help you maintain proper posture, reducing your chances of back pain. This crutch style also doesn’t allow you to rest your weight on your armpits, so they don’t get sore. Your hands and arms may still get a little tired, though.
Alternatives to Crutches
Both versions of crutches can have their drawbacks, including the fact that you can’t use your arms to carry things while you’re walking. If crutches don’t sound like the right fit, maybe a knee scooter or wheelchair would be a better option.
