Behavioral Therapy Service

Поведінкова терапія

Behavioral therapy is a common treatment for mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Although phantom limb pain can be a result of physical sensations in the body, this mental approach can also help manage it. Your therapist will help you identify negative patterns of thinking and behavior that are affecting the way you experience pain. Over time, behavioral therapy can help patients develop better habits and ways of thinking that can change their response to phantom limb pain.

Often people with amputated limbs suffer from depression after the procedure. Behavioral therapy can also help with this problem. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is the type of psychotherapy most commonly used to treat PTSD and trauma, although it has also shown success in treating amputees who experience phantom limb pain.
