About Phantom Limb Pain

Phantom limb pain is a condition that causes men and women to feel pain sensations from a limb that is no longer there. If a patient has experienced a serious injury, cancer, disease, or another complex medical issue, they might need to amputate a limb to prevent further damage to the body. Sometimes when this happens, even though the limb is no longer there, it can create painful sensations in the location of the excision.

Phantom Limb Pain Treatment

Phantom limb pain can feel like a stabbing pain, throbbing, achy, cramping, or burning sensation in a previously amputated region. These symptoms may happen right after the surgery, but they can also occur a few months after. Doctors are unsure what causes these painful sensations in an excised area, but the brain does not continue to receive nerve responses. When this happens, the brain has to adapt and rewire, which can cause a variety of mixed signals because the brain no longer receives sensory messages from this particular part of the body. To help you on your healthcare journey, we offer advanced treatment options, such as spinal cord stimulation, acupuncture, and mirror box therapy.
