Physiotherapy Service


Physiotherapy, also called physical therapy, includes various exercises and practical techniques. You will work with a physical therapist to evaluate the amputation site and create a care plan that may include stretching, strengthening exercises, and manual massage. Physiotherapists may also recommend that you try the different types of therapy discussed here.

For example, they can show you how to practice mirror therapy at home. Or they may refer you to a chiropractor for chiropractic care. Physical therapy can also help you adjust to wearing a prosthesis. This type of treatment is designed to help people regain as much movement as possible and reduce pain. Some amputees have had success with this approach.
