Goal-Based Programs for Amputation Rehabilitation
Evaluation and treatment plans
After the loss of a limb, patients often want to return home quickly and find new ways to live their lives with joy and independence. We can help.
We assess your condition, identify physical and emotional challenges and set aggressive and achievable goals.
An evidence-based treatment plan is then developed specifically to your needs and implemented immediately. Together, we’ll get you back to your life as quickly as possible.
Typical therapy modalities
Recovering from an amputation requires the assistance of several care providers including: physicians, physical therapists and occupational therapists. Their goal will be to increase your ability to live more independently, and they’ll work with you in the following areas:
- Learning to use a prosthesis when applicable
- Maintaining overall good health and a positive approach to life
A day in the life of a patient recovering from an amputation
You can expect to participate in goal-based physical and occupational therapy sessions for at least three hours each day and at least five days per week.
Please invite your loved ones to visit you in your private room, enjoy a meal with you and continue to live as normally as possible, while we do the hard work of healing together.
