Counseling & Resources
The loss of a limb is a life changing experience that can trigger feelings of sadness, loss, anger, depression and anxiety. These feelings can be a significant barrier to rehabilitation---a barrier that even the most advanced prosthesis cannot completely overcome. We encourage everyone who visits our centers to take advantage of professionals who are skilled in managing the emotions that are part of limb loss. Our care team focuses on each person’s overall health and wellness, working to understand each person's unique style of learning, and developing a customized plan for rehabilitation and training.
Our comprehensive approach to prosthetic rehabilitation can help patients decide if they need additional support in coping with their feelings about limb loss or other circumstances. We try to identify issues that limit patients in reaching their goals, and then offer the appropriate resources and support.
