Non-Prosthetic Rehabilitation

Amputee Rehabilitation for Non-Prosthetic Users: How TraumaPhysio Services Can Help

About Non-Prosthetic Rehabilitation

Amputation can be a life-changing event that presents numerous challenges for the individual. While prosthetic rehabilitation is often the primary focus, it may not be suitable or desired by all amputees.

In such cases, TraumaPhysio services can play a crucial role in helping people adapt and regain their independence as a wheelchair user.

What Can a Physiotherapist Do for Non-Limb wearers?

Physiotherapists can provide valuable support and guidance to those that have chosen not to use prosthetics. With a combination of specialist knowledge, considered assessment and patient led rehabilitation goals, a tailored programme can be devised by our physiotherapists which can help the individual to optimise their function and minimise the risk of developing secondary complications.

Regaining Independence

Losing a limb can greatly impact an individual’s ability to perform tasks independently when at home or in their local environment. TraumaPhysio therapists focus on helping the individual to identify areas of their life that they would like to improve, devising progressive rehabilitation programmes to develop the individual’s physical fitness, knowledge and provide opportunity to practice in a safe and progressive manner to be able to complete meaningful tasks independently. By regaining independence, clients can improve their quality of life and gain a sense of control over their circumstances.

Reintegration into the Community

The loss of a limb can also affect an individual’s social interactions and participation in community activities. Through targeted interventions, TraumaPhysio therapists can help the individual reintegrate into their community, whether it be through participating in old hobbies or discovering new ones. This can greatly improve an individual’s mental and emotional well-being.

Introducing New Activities

Aside from re-engaging in previous activities, TraumaPhysio services can also help introduce our clients to new activities that they may not have considered previously. By exploring different options and adapting them to fit the individual’s abilities, our physiotherapists can help our clients to discover new passions and interests.

Through a holistic approach that focuses on optimising function, regaining independence, reintegrating into the community, and introducing new activities, our therapists can play a crucial role in helping people to adapt to their new circumstances and help them to live meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Helen worked with my 88 year old Mum following her knee replacement. I was very very impressed. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive, she got my Mum full mobilised and back playing bowls. She had her operation in November 2018 and was she was back playing bowls in January 2019. My Mum has now had a refurbishment of her replacement hip and I have no hesitation in going back to her and recommending her to others.

An inner ear problem last July that developed into vestibular neuritis led to problems with the muscles, nerves and joints in my neck which caused nausea, dizziness, vision problems as well as the usual aches and pain. In February I came to the Physio4 You team in despair. Rachel did a thorough vestibular assessment and was able to reassure me that the vestibular problem was resolved. I was then given Helen’s details for the neck issues. She has been a real Godsend. She is calm, friendly, reassuring and professional. After a thorough exam in which she listened carefully to my history of symptoms, she took time to explain what the problem was and a plan for treatment going forward. This problem has caused me real anxiety at times. She set my mind at rest that I will get better. I am still undergoing treatment but there has been a vast improvement. She takes time to answer all my questions and I always leave feeling so positive. I would thoroughly recommend their services
