Using your Crutches

Cork Emergency Departments

After your injury or procedure, it may be necessary for you to use crutches for a while. We will provide you with a pair of crutches and show you how to use them. Depending on your injury, you may or may not be allowed to bear weight on your injured leg. Wear flat supportive shoes. Avoid wet floors.
