If you need to use one crutch or cane, read this

If you need to use one crutch or cane make sure to use it on the opposite side of your painful or injured leg. The purpose of a crutch is to help you move normally. When used on the opposite side, a crutch will unload the painful leg and reduce limping. If used on the same side, it will cause a limp (Have you ever seen House M.D.) This creates bad habits that’ll need to be addressed later.
