Phantom Limb Pain
February 4, 2015
Sovereign Rehabilitation is a comprehensive physical therapy and complete wellness partner in and around Atlanta, Georgia. Our premier therapists offer complete and exceptional care to our patients who are recovering from injury, surgery, a debilitating condition, or other conditions that require therapy for full recovery. Phantom limb pain is a condition in which a person who has had a limb amputated still feels pain at the sight of amputation. This condition ranges from mild to debilitating, and it requires the proper treatment for full recovery. At Sovereign Rehabilitation our team of therapists specializes in specific cases such as phantom limb pain, and we are committed to making our patients’ lives feel better.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we take a comprehensive approach to treatment for phantom limb pain. This condition occurs when the nerves that are severed from a body part still send pain signals to the brain as if the limb were still attached. Stabbing pains, intense hot and cold, tingling sensations, and cramping are the most common symptoms of phantom limb pain. Our therapists use a variety of treatment options to help patients find relief. We understand that no two patients are alike; therefore, we work with each patient on an individualized basis. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we also work as a team with patients’ other physicians in order to achieve the best outcomes.
Phantom limb pain is best relieved when treatment begins early. As soon as your referral and insurance portion are in place, we promise to make sure that your appointment is scheduled within 48 hours. Sovereign Rehabilitation is the effective rehabilitation source to trust in Atlanta. We are committed to making life feel better, so contact us today to schedule your appointment.
