A Guide to Using Crutches

Crutches, like a new pair of shoes, must fit properly in order to be used correctly. To help avoid soreness in certain areas, you should remember these suggestions.

Be sure to see Dr. Feld for follow up care. Take all your medicines and follow all other instructions provided. If any questions present, do not hesitate to contact the office at 757 228-1955.

When standing straight, there should be a little space (about 1½ inches) between the top of the crutch and your underarms.

Keep your elbows slightly bent to prevent strain on the elbow joint.

Hug the top of the crutches lightly against your rib cage with your upper arms. This helps to prevent too much rubbing and slippage.

Always wear a non-skid type of shoe with the flattest sole possible. Tennis shoes are excellent.

If Dr. Feld instructed you to put a little weight on the injured foot, then it should be carried slightly in front of you to help keep your balance.

If Dr. Feld allows you to put a little weight on the injured foot, you should move your injured leg and the crutches at the same time, placing a tolerable amount of weight on your injured foot.

When walking with your crutches, they should be placed on the floor slightly wider than your shoulders to allow a clear walking space. Place your weight on your hand grips not on your underarms.

When going upstairs, place your weight on the top of the crutches under your arms. First, step up with your good leg and shift your weight on that leg, then bring your injured leg and crutches up to the step. Rest, and repeat the process for the next step.

When coming downstairs, place the crutches and your injured leg down to the next step first, placing the weight on the crutches then step down with your good leg. Rest, and repeat the process for the next step.

Always look ahead of you, not down at your feet. Be careful of wet floors, scatter rugs, waxed floors, and items in your walking path. If you loose your balance, push the crutches aside.

"For Foot Pain See This One!!"

I learned of Podiatry Associates of Virginia from the internet and also asked some of the people whom I work with if they knew of Dr. Feld. To my pleasant surprise several of my co-workers were infact patients of his. One of them told me she found out about him from a neighbor who saw him lecture on diabetes at Virginia Beach General. So I called his office and made an appointment - and yes I was seen on time!!! I thought I would need surgery for my heel pain however, to my surprise he didn't recommend surgery but instead suggested other options, which to be quite honest I didn't think would work. But I followed his instructions and in less than a month I no longer had any pain ... and as of today have no recurrence of my pain. In my mind this proved to me without any doubt that he is very honest and is looking out for his patients best interest. I was so happy, I even recommended my sister and she is very happy with her bunion surgery. So I think if you have a foot problem you should go to the best and that is Dr. Feld! His office staff are very nice, friendly and that combination makes his office the best in the community.

"So Nice and Knowledgeable"

My Podiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Feld is one of the most compassionate, ethical and skilled doctors any person could ask for! I was so happy that my pastor recommended him as did one of my neighbors. The doctor was so nice and knowledgable and made it very easy for me to feel that I had made the right choice by coming to his foot and ankle (podiatry) office. Dr. Feld. is a very down to earth and friendly doctor. When I go in to visit him, he is always willing to give as much time as is necessary to make me feel like I got my monies worth and is not a quick provider as so many are these days. I fully suggest anyone who has a foot problem to see him.

"Friendly and Well Educated"

I wanted to write since I have been at Dr. Feld's office many times and have sent many of my friends and neighbors to be seen at his office. All, without exclusion, have stated how impressed they were with the friendly staff and ability of Dr. Feld to resolve the problem that they had. I even told my boss about Dr. Feld and after talking to the staff to schedule an apointment my boss told me how impressed he was with the service even though he was not yet a patient (he ended up having "spur surgery" and was happy with my recomendation ... thank goodness). So I fully recommend Dr. Feld!
