Advantages of prosthesis procedures

Posted on 7/4/2022 by Front Desk
Advantages of prosthesis proceduresThe application of prosthetics and orthotics to a variety of conditions and injuries includes helping people overcome partial or total paralysis, as well as helping restore normal use of the legs. Some common conditions for which prosthetics are used include multiple sclerosis (MS), muscular atrophy, spinal cord injuries, arthritic conditions, foot deformities, diabetic neuropathy, permanent limb deformities, stroke, multiple myeloma, and spinal injuries. Many patients require multiple prosthetic limbs and orthoses for achieving improved mobility or quality of life after accidents or trauma. This practice is becoming more widespread as studies continue to reveal the effectiveness and usefulness of such treatments. For treatment visit our doctor.

Therapies for prosthesis procedures

Physical Therapy and occupational therapy refer to specific types of health care treatments that are aimed at the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of physical disabilities and abnormalities. Occupational therapists help patients with tasks that limit their ability to function normally in their daily lives. Common tasks that are performed by physical therapy and occupational therapists include bathing, feeding, exercising, and moving the body. Our professionals can recommend devices and products from this prosthetics company in Philadelphia that promote healing and rehabilitation of injured or disabled lower extremities. They also can evaluate the results of surgical procedures and evaluate the progress of a patient who has been immobilized using such devices.

Our surgical prosthetic consists of a small, lightweight, fully contained, medical-grade device that is surgically placed into the injured body part or area through minor surgery. When a person experiences a traumatic injury, the first thing that occurs is usually a sharp pain and a tingling sensation. This often causes the person to lose feeling in that particular body part, and the extent of this loss normally ranges from minimal to severe. Once the person realizes that something is wrong, the next course of action is to find an appropriate orthosis.
