Working with a patient for a day or sometimes two, Amputee Clinic therapists are able to our patients up and walking. They start on the parallel bars, then transition to a walker, then walk without a walker – and learn how to use the assistance of a cane or even crutches until they’ve gained the strength to walk independently. During this journey to mobility, however, exercise, stretching and strengthening all play a vital part in a patient’s journey to rehabilitation.
