Does walking on crutches count as exercise?
Walking with crutches provides an increased cardio workout. Crutches, used for balance and stability after a leg injury or surgery, may seem like an intimidating addition to your fitness routine. Don’t despair!
What muscles do crutches work out?
The bulk of your weight is supported by your arms and shoulders when you use axillary crutches, but your abdominal muscles are also engaged, primarily to keep your trunk upright and your torso stabilized. The abdominal muscles are also engaged when you step forward with the crutches.
