Wheeee! Whew! Hey everybody, it’s Doctor Jo.
Since most people aren’t gonna be able to go down the steps like that if they have an
injury to one of their legs, I’m gonna show you how to go up and down the steps, the safe
way, if you’re injured. So we have several sayings to help us remember how to go up and
down steps in the therapy world. I like to always tell people “Go up with the good, down
with the bad.” You might also hear “good things go to heaven, bad things go the hell.” And
so what you’re gonna do, is you want when you’re going up, the good’s gonna go up first,
so if my left side is injured, I’m gonna step up with my right because it’s powering it
up, and I don’t have to use that left side as much. Powering up. Powering up. Then you
want to go down with your bad, so my left side is the bad one, I’m gonna bring it down
first, and then my right’s gonna come. And that is because the foot that’s on the top
of the step is gonna be the one doing the work. So that scares people a lot, but this
one’s doing the work, so you want the good one on top, the down one, the bad one, going
down. So there you go, just like that. Alright, there you have it, going up with the good.
Going down with the bad. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments section,
