If you do, do you find they cause problems for your other joints? Also, what are you reasons for it e.g. is it for balance or pain relief or something else?
I am affected badly in my feet, ankles and hips - I use 1 or 2 crutches (depending on the day) to get around but my shoulder (it has RA but not as badly as other joints) is really struggling and when my hands/wrists are swollen, it's a nightmare to move at all. OT gave me ergonomic crutches but still, it's not easy using crutches with RA in your hands and wrists - as I'm sure many of you will attest to! I use crutches because I cannot get the swing in my hips and I wobble, so have had a few falls, also I just cannot get the movement to get one foot in front of the other without them (although this is on a bad day).
