Going for an amputation surgery must have been a difficult decision, especially because of changes that are bound to happen after the surgery. Amputation causes both temporary and permanent disability, affecting one’s physical appearance, mobility, safe care, and productivity.
Amputation rehab is always administered to victims immediately after being discharged from surgery. Post-surgery and amputation rehabilitation are combined to assist such patients to recover effectively. If you recently had an amputation surgery, contact Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic to meet with our specialist to assist you down the recovery path and attain that comfortable life you once had.
When you come for an amputation rehab program at our clinic, the outcome is after by different factors such as

- Extent of disability
- Type and level of amputation
- Supports from people (friends and family)
However, amputation rehab aims to help buildup amputated patients back to a level of independence and comfort through the use of orthopedic, sports physiotherapy, and massage therapy. During the program, we encouraged and educated them on things they could achieve, even as an amputee. Over time lots of amputees suffer from emotional distress and community rejection because of their conditions. But at Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic, we focus on maximizing a patient performance function at home and in the community, promoting independence, and boosting self-esteem. Most importantly, we urge their loved ones to support them because that goes a long way after leaving each treatment session.
