I walk with crutches and yesterday I landed spectacularly on my bum after slipping on a man hole cover. Surprisingly I didn't hurt myself aside from a graze on my finger. I was dropping something off to a friend and my boyfriend was in the car up the road (no parking closer). I think it must have been the shock but I turned around and saw my boyfriend Usain Bolt-ing it down the road to me and I just started laughing. Next thing I know my friend is coming out of her house, two of her neighbors are staring out of their windows and my bf was running so fast he overshot me and had to come back.
Usually I look down while I'm walking to make sure I don't slip or put my crutch in a hole or something. Clearly I should be more careful lol. I'm getting a dead neck though!
I'm just picturing myself in a few years as the hunch back of Lancashire!
Any tips on neck exercises and good posture techniques would be greatly appreciated!
Please share your anecdotes so we can all have a giggle x
