Bad Gait

Posted on November 20th, by Megan in Uncategorized. No Comments

Walking with canes or assisting someone to walk and knowing where to stand is of course on the NCELX!

Remember the acronym C.O.A.L

C- Cane

O-opposite

A-Affected

L-leg

So if assisting someone without a cane, you will stand in place of the cane. It is the same procedures.

Remember when going up and down stairs. Good leg to heaven and bad leg goes to hell. So when going up the stairs, the good leg with always go first. When descending stairs, the bad leg will always go first .
