Phantom Limb Pain Management
There are many obstacles you will conquer following an amputation. In the weeks and months following an amputation, you may feel certain sensations or pain in the area of your former limb. This is referred to by doctors and amputees as phantom limb pain. Phantom limb pain can be a serious issue because the resulting pain, burning, tingling, or aching following an amputation is very real, and can range from mild to severe pain.
