Pre- and Post-amputation Rehabilitation

Participation in Physical Therapy throughout the entire process of preparing to undergo an amputation, to resuming the desired physical activity with a custom prosthesis is highly beneficial to the physical, mental, emotional and psychological health and success of patients.

  • PRE-AMPUTATION PHYSICAL THERAPY maximizes surgical outcomes and success, which helps the patient to prepare for the impending life changes that they are about to experience.
  • PRE-PROSTHETIC TRAINING (post-amputation but prior to receiving a custom prosthesis) prepares the patient's body and mind to begin the process of learning to re-integrate into society in a maximized capacity.
  • PROSTHETIC TRAINING maximizes the patient's potential in learning to transfer, ambulate and resume their prior lifestyle with their new custom prosthesis.
