      Overuse or Strain

      Inflammation of the tendons around the ankle joint can lead to pain. This can be triggered by repetitive activities or sudden increases in physical activity.

      Nerve Compression

      Sometimes, nerves in the ankle can become compressed or irritated, causing pain. This might be due to factors like wearing tight footwear or sitting in a way that puts pressure on the nerves in the ankle and foot.

      • Ice: Applying an ice pack wrapped in a cloth to the affected area can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. Apply it for 15-20 minutes at a time, several times a day.
      • Compression: Consider using a compression bandage or brace to provide support and reduce swelling.

        According to a recent study that analyzed people with spinal cord injuries, it was determined that 58.8% of survey respondents indicated that they had a sleep problem. This study is one of many that has shown that those suffering from injuries struggle with poor sleep. 

        If you’re an individual suffering from sleeping problems while recovering on crutches, you’ve come to the right place. Our blog delves beneath the surface to share expert findings on ways that help you manage sleeping problems during your recovery.

          Effects Of Lack of Sleep And Poor Quality Sleep

          sleeping trouble man

          In the 21st century, most people don’t get enough sleep, with 70% of adults reporting insufficient sleep at least one night every month. 

          With busy work days, school lives, and more people staying up all night, it’s unsurprising that people suffer multiple effects from lack of sleep and poor sleep quality. 

          In the short term, it’s believed that lack of sleep can affect a person’s mood, judgment, and ability to learn and retain knowledge. It can also increase an individual’s chance of sustaining injuries as their cognitive function is impaired by poor sleep quality. 

          Other studies have also found that lack of sleep can lead to emotional distress, performance deficits, bodily pain, reduced quality of life, and increased stress. 

          In the long term, continued poor-quality sleep patterns can lead to an individual becoming obese, developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and potentially dying before their time. 

          Additionally, people with inadequate sleep are an estimated 17 times more likely to experience anxiety symptoms and ten times more likely to have signs of depression. 

          Moreover, a growing body of scientific research indicates that poor sleep raises the risk for suicidal behavior, especially among adults. 

          10 Ways To Help You Fix Sleeping Problems

          When using crutches to aid in your recovery from an injury, finding ways to speed up your healing is crucial. Getting enough sleep is one of the best ways to ensure you heal faster.

          To help you with this, we have listed ten ways to fix your sleeping problems that are tried, true, and likely to work. 

          1. Manage Main Problems That Cause Sleeping Issues

          Unfortunately, many of your everyday problems can affect how well you sleep each night. That’s why one of the best ways to recover when using crutches is to manage your main problems that cause sleeping issues. 

          There are a few ways you can do this. For example, many people find that meditation before bed helps reduce anxiety and stress. According to a recent study, mindfulness-based therapy (meditation) helps to reduce stress, depression, and anxiety. 

          Additionally, if you’re experiencing pain from your injury, it’s a good idea to follow your doctor’s advice if you want to sleep well. So if your physician says that you need rehabilitation and to exercise, ensure you’re doing so to sleep better. Essentially, the less pain you feel, the better you will sleep every day. 

          2. Create A Good Sleeping Environment

          Did you know that if your bedroom environment promotes sleep, it can improve how you feel during waking hours?

          According to the Sleep Foundation, numerous studies have revealed that a relaxing sleeping environment optimized for temperature, noise levels, light, and comfort is the key to sleeping better. This is because the mind strongly associates sleep and the bedroom, so creating a good sleeping environment will ensure you manage sleeping problems effectively. 

          Luckily, creating a good sleeping environment isn’t difficult. All you need to do is ensure your bedroom is kept dark, tidy, and quiet, with a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius. To keep your room dark, you can use blackout curtains; to keep it cool, you can use a fan or air conditioner. 

          3. Speak To Your Doctor About Medications

          According to Statistica, it’s believed that about 8% of Americans use sleeping aid prescription medication to help them sleep. A further 11% claim to use non-prescription medications like herbal teas and Melatonin to help address sleeping issues. 

          If you’re an individual who is struggling to sleep while using crutches to recover, you should speak to your doctor about medications you can use that help. A doctor can determine if you have an underlying sleep disorder like sleep apnea or insomnia. 

          Additionally, a physician can recommend techniques and medication to help you sleep better – like sleeping tablets. 

          4.Watch What You Drink In The Evening

          Unsurprisingly, what you drink in the hours leading up to when you go to sleep can significantly affect how you sleep. Thus, to ensure you sleep better and alleviate your sleep problems, you must avoid caffeine and alcohol. These two drinks can make it hard to fall asleep and stay sleeping throughout the evening while also making your sleep quality poor. 

          According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, drinking 400mg of caffeine between 0.3, and 6 hours before going to sleep can notably disrupt sleep. 

          For example, it was found that if an individual consumes caffeine 6 hours before going to sleep, their sleep is reduced by more than an hour. If this degree of sleep loss continues over a long period, it can cause detrimental effects on an individual daytime functioning capabilities. 

          So it’s best to avoid drinking beverages with caffeine after lunchtime to ensure you don’t encounter these sleep problems. You also need to remember that how much you drink during the day can impact your sleep quality. 

          If you drink too much, you could experience multiple sleep disturbances throughout the night when going to the bathroom. So try to limit how much you drink before bed. 

          5. Increase Your Physical Activity Levels


          Exercising when recovering on crutches can be difficult, but it’s one of the very best ways to alleviate sleep problems. 

          According to the CDC, the average American adult is recommended to exercise a minimum of 150 minutes every week. This exercise should include moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity. 

          Thus, if you feel well enough and want a good night’s rest, aim to exercise 30 to 60 minutes every day. Yet, don’t exercise immediately before you go to sleep, and don’t forget to speak with your doctor. 

          A doctor can approve the exercises you’re allowed to do to improve your sleep that won’t cause you to hurt yourself and remain on crutches longer. 

          6. Reduce Napping

          Experts have determined that those who experience poor sleep quality shouldn’t nap as it can worsen this problem. A recent study from the Department of Anesthesiology at Xiangya Hospital Central South University had some interesting findings. 

          This study revealed that frequent daytime napping poses a 14% increased risk of stroke and a 12% higher risk of developing hypertension in adults who nap than those who don’t. 

          Additionally, frequent daytime naps can confuse your internal clock and reduce your sleep cycle and rhythm, worsening sleep issues. So before you start trying to nap to resolve your sleep problems, speak to your doctor about whether it would be beneficial or if you should avoid it altogether. 

          7. Embrace Winding Down

          If you want to sleep better and have more energy for your crutch use during your recovery, you need to embrace winding down. Experts at the Sleep Foundation stated that winding down for a minimum of 30 minutes can help an individual fall asleep easier. 

          Luckily, there are many ways a person can wind down. For example, you can listen to soothing music, stretch, meditate, or quietly read. Each activity promotes relaxation and helps your body easily fall into its natural sleep rhythm. 

          If one activity doesn’t work, try something new the next night until you have a wind-down schedule that works. 

          8. Write Your Sleep Habits In A Journal

          Sleep medicine expert and clinical psychologist Michael Breus revealed that about 30% of American adults don’t sleep for the physician-recommended seven to nine hours an evening. If you’re in this statistic, it might be time to consider sleep journaling. 

          Even though there are mixed results on whether sleep journaling is an effective way to help a person sleep better, it’s still something you should consider. This is because it works for some people. Yet, what is sleep journaling? 

          The answer is simple – it’s the act of keeping a sleep diary. Every morning you will write about how you slept when you went to sleep and any factors you think might have affected your sleep. 

          With this information in one place, a doctor can help determine what might be causing your sleep problems (for example, an injury) and help you figure out how to fix it. 

          9. Create A Sleep Routine

          From when we’re children, it’s recommended to have an established sleep routine. In fact, a study has proven that children with a consistent bedtime routine experience better sleep outcomes. So it makes sense that, as adults, creating a bedtime routine is just as important – especially when recovering on crutches after an injury. 

          When you follow a set sleep routine, your body can regulate its internal clock, which helps address some sleeping problems and poor sleep quality. So try to sleep at the same time every night and have a similar or routine wind-down activity that your body can learn.

          10. Don't Use Electronics Before Bed

          use Electronics-Before-Bed

          One of the worst things you can do if you want to fix sleep problems and poor sleep quality is to use electronics before bed. Electronics such as smartphones, televisions, and computers emit high levels of blue light. This light tricks your brain into believing that it’s still daytime, causing you to experience a bad night’s rest. 

          Interestingly, a 2020 study determined that about 90% of global studies showed that increased screen time directly correlates with decreased sufficient sleep and delayed sleep onset. The findings also revealed that screen time affects brain recovery and rejuvenation each night because it disrupts sleep patterns and quality. 

          This is why many sleep experts recommend switching off technology that emits blue light at least two hours before bed to ensure better sleep quality. 

          Final Word

          Hopefully, you now know multiple effective ways to manage sleeping problems while recovering from crutches.

          If unsure where to start, we recommend talking with your doctor and establishing a sleep routine after creating a good sleeping environment. Once you’ve done this, you can try the other ways we mentioned to help you fix your sleep problems.

              The wearer has to consider the weight and height of the cast when choosing their shoes, as this can make them tight or uncomfortable. The wearer needs to take into account the type of cast they have and, therefore, what kind of footwear is most suitable.

              How To Stop Crutches From Hurting Your Hand

              How To Stop Crutches From Hurting Your Hand

              If you incorrectly place your hands or have too tight or loose a grip, you will hurt your hands. To ensure your hands are less likely to hurt, you must keep your arm straight without bending your wrist. Additionally, you need to learn how to stand correctly with your crutches. It’s easy to hurt your hands if you stand incorrectly.

              To stand correctly, hold both your crutches by the handle with the arm that is on the same side as your injury. With your other hand, you need to push yourself up by standing only on your good leg. After you have stood, you need to take one crutch in each hand while ensuring you’re well-balanced. Standing this way will ensure you don’t hurt your hands or your injury.

                1.Consider Alternative Mobility Devices

                If crutches are hurting your hands, why not consider using alternative mobility devices? This first tip isn’t directly related to preventing your hands from hurting. 

                Yet, it’s an excellent tip if you find that handheld crutches are not suitable for your hands. Below are a few of the best alternative mobility devices. They won’t hurt your hands. They will also allow you to be mobile while you recover or come to terms with your mobility issues. 

                Hands-Free Crutches

                Although hands-free crutches are not widely known, they are an excellent alternative to traditional crutches. Unlike standard crutches, hands-free crutches don’t need you to use your hands. 

                With a hands-free crutch, you will place your injured leg onto a knee crutch. This knee placement acts as a padded and comfortable stool for your leg. This type of crutch allows you to use your unhurt leg to bear the brunt of your weight. Thus it helps support you when you’re standing and walking. It also aids in taking pressure off of your underarms and stops your hands from hurting. 

                Knee Scooters

                A knee scooter is also often known as a knee walker. This type of mobility aid is like a hands-free crutch. Yet, the difference is that it has wheels and resembles a traditional scooter. A knee scooter helps you keep pressure off your hands and any injury below the knee. 

                Although you are using your hands to help steer the scooter where it needs to go, you aren’t straining your hands to do so. Additionally, knee scooters are also safer than certain traditional crutches. They are also more comfortable and more maneuverable.


                One of the oldest, most well-known, and commonly used mobility aids are wheelchairs. A wheelchair is exactly what you are thinking. It’s a chair that has wheels, armrests, and a solid bar leg rest. 

                Usually, wheelchairs can be used for various injuries. Newer models don’t require you to use your hands to move them, which prevents you from hurting them. Your hands won’t get hurt because many modern wheelchairs have electronic capabilities now. 

                2.Use Your Crutches Correctly


                If you know how to use your underarm or forearm crutches correctly, you’re less likely to hurt your hands. When you are walking with your crutches, your hands need to always take most of the weight. However, the placement of your hands and your grip is important. 

                If you incorrectly place your hands or have too tight or loose a grip, you will hurt your hands. To ensure your hands are less likely to hurt, you must keep your arm straight without bending your wrist. Additionally, you need to learn how to stand correctly with your crutches. It’s easy to hurt your hands if you stand incorrectly. 

                To stand correctly, hold both your crutches by the handle with the arm that is on the same side as your injury. With your other hand, you need to push yourself up by standing only on your good leg. After you have stood, you need to take one crutch in each hand while ensuring you’re well-balanced. Standing this way will ensure you don’t hurt your hands or your injury. 

                3. Add Padding To The Grip

                Often the easiest way to stop your hands from hurting when using crutches is to add padding to the grip. You can buy extra padding crutch grips that slip onto crutch handles, or you can add your own padding. 

                Should you opt to add your own padding to the grips, all you need is a few old towels and some duct tape or heavy-duty tape. If you don’t have old towels, you can use any type of fabric as long as it’s thick enough to provide adequate cushioning.  

                Once you have the necessary padding items, all you need to do is fold the material and tape it to the grips. Yet, when taping it, ensure it’s placed and folded neatly. You don’t want to have a few parts of the grip with more padding, and you don’t want your makeshift padding to move. 

                4. Keep Your Hands Well Moisturized

                It may seem irrelevant, but keeping your hands moisturized will help stop your hands from hurting. Usually, any type of moisturizer will work. Yet, to ensure your hands don’t slip and get hurt further, it’s best to use a cream that has a high absorbance quality. 

                How Do You Prevent Chafing From Crutches?

                When using crutches, you can use moisturizer and talcum powder. These substances stop your hands from chafing. Often crutch grips will rub against your hands as you use them. This can cause your hands to rub raw, develop blisters, and chafe. Using an absorbent moisturizer and talcum powder will ensure your hands stop hurting. 

                5. Use Fingerless Cycling Gloves

                If you don’t want to add cushioning to the grips of your crutches, you can opt to wear fingerless cycling gloves. Fingerless cycling gloves come with padded palms. This helps stop your hands from hurting when you grip your crutches. 

                These types of gloves are also excellent at absorbing sweat and keeping your hands dry. By absorbing the sweat, your hands can always maintain their grip on your crutch handles. Thus you will be preventing your hands from slipping and getting hurt. 

                6. Just Keep With It

                Before taking drastic measures or implementing any of the tips we have been talking about, you should try to use your crutches for a few weeks. It often takes time for your hands to adjust to using crutches, and it can be a painful process at first. 

                Sometimes if you give yourself time to get used to using crutches, you will find your hands won’t hurt as much. This is because you will get used to the motion and process of using them. 

                Final Word

                Hopefully, you now have a decent idea of how to stop crutches from hurting your hands. If you use any of the six methods we spoke of, it’s likely you will adjust to using your crutches on a daily basis or while your injury heals. 

                Adding additional padding or switching to fingerless cycling gloves can make your entire crutch use experience more pleasant. Yet, remember, before embarking on your journey to try and make your crutches hurt your hands, you should try and get used to them first. If that doesn’t work, looking into alternative mobility aid options, as we spoke about, could be your best choice.


                When to Use a Cane instead of Crutches

                When to use a Cane instead of Crutches

                The continuous development in the medical field provides various solutions to various cases. Mobility-aid devices are destined to offer a helping hand. They help patients deal with an injury or a disability that limits movement. These injuries differ and thus the required mobility-aid depends on your injury.

                Severe injuries along the waist down may restrain you to using crutches. In some other cases, a cane is more suitable. Understanding your injury is important for you to know which one you should use. Here is when you should use crutches and when to use a cane.

                  Differences Between Crutches and Cane

                  Using a cane is completely different from using crutches. It is not a secret that using crutches is more demanding and difficult, while a cane is comfortable and easy. The main difference here is that crutches  keep weight off your injury for proper healing. Crutches function as an extra pair of legs that you rely on instead of your injured leg.

                  A cane is more destined to help the person in use maintain balance. They offer more assistance for walking. Both mobility-aid devices are here to help you move more swiftly while you recover, and each has its purpose. To determine which one you should use, ask your doctor about your injury.

                  You may also have the option of resorting to other mobility aid devices like a wheelchair or a walker.

                  Top Benefits of Using Crutches


                  If you are suffering from a non-weight bearing injury, crutches are what you must go with. Crutches keep you from putting the slightest of weight on your injury, which promotes faster recovery. It is advised that you don’t put any pressure over your injured muscles. That’s why crutches are more ideal for non to minimum weight-bearing  cases.

                  Crutches also keep your poster straight and at the right position, which limits back pain and bad poster.  Moreover, crutches are more stable, and you won’t have to worry about slipping or falling. Once you get familiar with using crutches, it would be an easy sail from then. Make sure you choose a suitable size for height.

                  Top benefits of using a cane

                  While using a cane remains inadvisable for non weight-bearing conditions, using a cane when possible has its own pros. Utilizing a cane can be much safer and more comfortable than hanging to a pair of big crutches.
                  If you don’t feel much pain when you take a step, a cane offers more stability and support as you walk.

                  There are many situations where you find using a cane much better. It’s easier to get around with a cane, and no risk of ankle pain which results from misuse of crutches. Climbing up and down stairs with a cane is also a piece of cake. With one hand on the handrail and one hand on the cane, it’s safer and more comfortable. In addition, it doesn’t take much space and can be stored wherever you want.

                  When to use a Cane and When to Not


                  Using a cane is definitely much easier and offers no difficulties. However, make no mistake and be careful before you decide to use a cane. You have to understand your injury or disability very well before resorting to a cane.

                  Canes’ main purpose is to aid with basic mobility and give a slight relief for your pain when you step. They help you keep balance and assist you as you walk. They are generally used by the elderly to help them stay balanced and move much safely. Likewise, they can be used by individuals suffering from a chronic illness as well,  like arthritis.

                  With that being said, some cases don’t permit the use of a cane and require crutches. In case of a non weight-bearing situation, you must not attempt to use a cane. Broken bones along your leg or foot need serious attention and must take proper recovery. Under severe circumstances, crutches or any other weight support mobility-aid device is more suitable. Be sure to follow your doctor’s advice and know when your injury can take to bear pressure. You may be able to switch to a cane once your leg or foot heal enough to bear your body weight.

                  Using Your Cane Instead of Crutches

                  Using a cane is very simple and straightforward. Hardly anything could go wrong while using a cane. However, there are a few things you might want to keep in mind. Like any other mobility aid device, it will take some time to get used to it.

                  First, make sure you buy a cane that is suitable for your body height and offers a comfortable handle. Keep in mind that canes aim to assist you as you walk and keep you balanced. You are not going to lean on your cane and put your weight over it. If your injury can’t support your weight, you should still wait before you change to using a cane.

                  When walking, hold on the cane to the opposite direction of your injured leg. The cane should move in parallel with your injured leg. Swing the cane at the same time you take a step. It should hit the ground as soon as your foot does. Every time you take a step with your injured leg, your cane is there to offer support. Canes are also very helpful when taking stairs, especially if there is a handrail.

                  Final Word

                  Choosing which mobility aid device is more suitable for injury depends on the type of injury you are dealing with. You have to note that while both crutch and canes are destined to help with movement, both have different purposes. If you are old and need some assistance with walking, canes are more suitable.

                  While in other cases, you have to consider your injury or disability. Your doctor will recommend using crutches if your injury can’t take any pressure, and you must wait until it heals. It is important that you don’t attempt to use a cane before due time to avoid worsening your condition.

                    Ultimately, which crutch tips are the best for you will depend on your needs and preferences.

                      Sticky Safe has a 2 x 17 inches flexible foam-like wire that makes moving around or relaxing easy. They can twist and are super strong for holding up the crutches.

                      Since the Safe holder comprises flexible rubber, you can easily bend it to fit. That makes attaching it to crutches or wheelchairs easier. Using black makes it compatible with any color shade of crutches, wheelchair, or scooter. Most crutches come in silver hues, and a black holder will fit perfectly.

                      Best for Multiple Holders – Crutcheze Cane Holder


                      Crutcheze cane holder twists perfectly to keep your crutches from falling off. In addition, you get three hooks instead of two holders. So, that makes holding up your pair of crutches easier. Three holders are additional perks for your purchase.

                      The Crutcheze cane holder can twist or bend with ease. That ensures you can hold your crutches in place. Due to the firm foam exterior, the holder remains sturdy on the crutches. That’s why it does not fall off once attached to a wheelchair, scooter, and more. But the internal metal helps increase the durability. Now, you can enjoy the holder for years.

                      However, you may have to straighten the holder sometimes. It is because it tends to loosen up a bit after several twisting onto surfaces. But it only requires turning the other way to unwind.

                      You get a 60-days money-back guarantee with your purchase. So, if you are not satisfied, please feel free to request a hassle-free refund.

                      Best Snap-on Design – NOVA Cane Holder for Rollator


                      I like the Nova cane holder because it looks sturdy and firm. It offers incredible ergonomic value for your crutches’ support needs. The structure is to snap on the crutches on one side of the tube. You can then snap on the other side, walking cane, wheeler, or other surfaces.

                      Nova cane holder comprises thick plastic. That guarantees durability. Since it is plastic, it can withstand the elements to keep you safe and dry. If you use the holder appropriately, then you will experience fewer slips. In addition, your crutches should be safe from falling often. 

                      Having a one-inch diameter makes it perfect for 7/8 inches diameter crutch tubes to fit in. But the major drawback is that smaller or larger tubes will not fit. However, such a snap-on design structure may limit the places you can use the holder.

                      Best for Multiple Mobility Aids – Bodyhealt Adjustable Cane Holder


                      Bodyhealt Adjustable holder offers a crutch holder with outstanding ergonomic value. The good part is that it works perfectly with not only crutches but other mobility aids. I like the Bodyhealt holder because it sits firmly once attached to the crutch and other objects. That makes it sturdy.

                      However, it requires some time to disassemble the parts and to screw on. You can also use the Allen wrench to tighten the holder to the crutches so that you can loosen or fasten the crutches at any time.

                      Black is a conventional color. So, the color should blend perfectly for crutches, wheelchairs, or walkers. Moreover, the black plastic comprises durable material to ensure it lasts for a long time coming. And it should also help keep the holder firmly in place.

                      Best Wheelchair Crutch Holder – Diestco Crutch Carrier for Manual Wheelchairs


                      What makes the Diestco B6313 unique is that it is a storage bag. Diestco offers an incredible choice for underarm and forearm crutches. That’s because both crutches cannot stand along without support. 

                      It means you can have your forearm or underarm crutches inside the bag. Then, you can secure it to a manual wheelchair for easy movement. Now, you have another way to reduce the incidence of slips or multiple falls. 

                      The Diestco storage bag comprises polyester materials. Therefore, no need to worry about water spills as it is water-resistant. 

                      Since the bag is a made in USA product, it should offer a fantastic experience. Why? USA-made products strive to follow the regulation of the standard organization of the USA.

                      With the reflective tape, you can prevent collision with others at night.

                      Recommended Diestco Crutch Bag | Final Words

                      What’s the best crutch holder from the list? It is the Diestco Crutch bag for several reasons. First, the Diestco effectively carries the crutches without slips or additional weight. But you also get enough space to store other supplies like your drinks.

                      With the Diestco, you enjoy a secure carriage using the hooks and look strap. Also, the reflective tape increases safety.

                      The StickSafe Walking stick holder will no doubt hold your crutches in place. It also works well for scooters and wheelchairs. But you may have to deal with it shifting when on smooth surfaces.

                      Crutcheze cane holder gives you three as against one or two for other products. The impressive part is that the holder twists perfectly to suit the crutch and wheelchair. Having the hanging stick increases the sturdiness. If you feel dissatisfied after purchase the 60 days, money-back guarantee makes it a win-win. 

                      However, the Crutcheze cane holder cannot take up many weights.

                      Nova Cane holder is unique because of the snap-on design. More so, the choice of unbreakable plastic gives it a sense of durability. However, the one-inch diameter (7/8 inches) for the tube is a significant limitation. Also, any protruding part on the wheelchair to the crutches will make tightening impossible.

                      Bodyhealt cane holder is an impressive fit for different mobility aids. It also works for all sizes and shapes. But it may be slightly technical to install the upper and lower holder cups. And there is no instructional manual to help.

                      Picking the best crutch holder from the above list may seem tricky. But the truth is, we have a variety of options with their uniqueness. However, when making a purchase decision, let your lifestyle and duration of use serve as a guide.
