Helping patients with rehabilitation and the management of the affected area after an amputation, is a big part of what we clinically do in our practice. We also ensure that patients are managing psychologically and emotionally after the amputation as this is a crucial part of the rehabilitation process.
From a physical perspective, we need to help the patient adjust to the new length of the finger, limb, or wherever the amputation has occurred. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the patient is properly managing the area where the amputation was performed and also managing functionally.
Looking at the hypersensitivity, we look at the proprioception of the finger or the limb when it comes to bending, turning or twisting. This is a major part of what we do as part of the rehabilitation process.
