The article presents a study that examines body posture of the non-crutch gait and types of crutch gait of healthy volunteers. It discusses methodologies and materials used in the study including the Bonferroni test, X-ray imaging, and the Gait and Posture Assesment tool for investigating alignment of the body. It concludes that the use of crutches helps in lowering the weight imposed on the hip joint and reducing pain in the hip joint or the inguinal area.
