Long-Term Effects of an Amputation

The devastating effects of a work injury amputation are not only physical, but also psychological trauma and emotional discomfort. The amputation site can cause reduced mechanical stability and practical limitations such as increased use of the opposite, remaining limb.

A further potential complication of amputation is the phenomenon of “phantom limb” where the injured worker reports they can actually feel the body part that is no longer there. The symptoms of the phantom pain can include aching, burning, and even movement. Researchers believe that such symptoms relate to the relationship of the brain with the body, which mimics information to the rest of the brain about a limb regardless of whether is exists or not.

Life after a work injury amputation is a challenge that does not have to be faced alone. There is a wide range of treatment options to assist an injured worker to restore functional and emotional well-being following an amputation, including exciting advances in prosthetics.
