Healthy Living for Amputees

When a person becomes an amputee the initial rehabilitation period involves issues like residual limb bandaging, exercises, the temporary (or preparatory) prosthetic fitting, and physiotherapy and occupational therapy. There are, of course, the emotional issues to deal with too.

There are also many health-related concerns, such as residual limb and socket hygiene, and weight control, that become an ongoing part of an amputee’s life.
