At Crutch Store, we only sell high quality crutches.Many crutch users rely on their crutches for full time use, but even if you only use your crutches for shorter periods of time, there are several benefits to buy high quality crutches:- Durability: with the proper care and regular use, our crutches will last a long time. Most "cheap" crutches bought at a drugstore or supermarket will start to rattle after a short period of time and will even break before you notice.

When you think about crutches, most of us will think about underarm. These crutches were really popular in the past and they're still around, specially when someone needs extra affordable crutches, or only needs it for a couple of days.
We don't sell underarm crutches at Crutch Store, and the reason is that Forearm crutches are better for your body in general, since it won't give extra pressure to your arms, shoulders and elbows. Forearm crutches are also more convenient, as they are not as bulky, also it is possible to use your hands while using the crutches.
It's true that Forearm crutches will require more core strength, and that there is a process to learn how to use it, especially for those who have been using underarm for a long time, but the benefits, both long-term and short-term, are worth it!
