What kind of foot/leg condition would you need crutches but not a boot, cast, brace, or splint for more than 7 months?

My neighbor doesn't have anything protecting her foot or leg but almost always uses crutches. Sometimes she does hop on one foot without the crutches. She goes down the stairs sitting down. What could be wrong, medically?
