Phantom Limb Pain and Discomfort


Many people with amputations experience varying degrees of discomfort in their residual limb(s). Persons with circulatory disease or other types of injuries can experience significant pain before surgery, which may or may not be entirely resolved after limb amputation. Phantom limb sensation and pain are also very common, even among children. At Custom Prosthetic Services Ltd. we work closely with our clients and health care professionals to identify and treat the cause(s) of any limb discomfort or pain.
