Understanding The Full Impact Of Amputation
An amputation injury can affect many facets of life. The injury may make it difficult or impossible to perform the same job duties. Balance and coordination may be affected. Some victims experience phantom limb pain, in which pain or sensations may still be felt in the amputated limb.
Adjusting to a new way of life is necessary for amputation victims. Many go through intensive rehabilitation and physical therapy. The victim may need a wheelchair or other assistive devices.
Depending on what area of the body is affected, the victim may benefit from prosthetic limbs, hooks, artificial hands or other devices or prostheses.
The victim may also experience emotional effects. Due to the traumatic nature of many of the accidents causing these injuries, the victim may experience depression or anxiety. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may also occur. The victim may benefit from therapy or counseling.
Another complicating factor is where the injury occurred. If a serious injury occurred in the workplace, there are additional benefits that may be available.
