    What Are The Best Crutches To Use For Travelling?

    I am using underam ones which I find so much more practical for carrying things, and they are really good for being able to lean on them and keeping my hands free. The only problem with them is they often chafe the top of my ribs so my doctor suggested I go shirtless, which...

    Three Times

    I was on crutches in grade school for several weeks with a severely sprained ankle, 8 weeks in high school when I broke my leg and once in college when I tore the ligaments in another ankle.  If nothing else it's a good way to build upper body strength.

    My Cp And Crutches

    I'm new to writing stories and not really sure if anyone will be interested. I was born with cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia. It took me longer than most kids, but eventually I learnt to walk. My problem is that I don't have proper control of my legs. When I'm standing still you...

    I've been on crutches 2 other times,

    and now this is the third time. I actually have a question though. since I can only wear sweat pants, I have no pockets. sweat shirt pockets are too shallow to hold my phone so I can listen to music. does anyone know how I can crutch along places while listening to earphones?
