Phantom Limb Pain

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta Phantom Limb Pain TreatmentPhantom limb pain is a phenomenon that affects millions of people all over the world. This pain refers to mild to extreme pain felt in the area where a limb has been amputated. Although the limb is no longer there, the nerves that traveled to the amputated limb are still "alive" with feeling. Though the nerve endings have nowhere to travel to, they still send pain signals to the brain that make the brain think that the limb is still there. The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offer patients expert care in finding solutions for phantom limb pain. We are committed to treating each patient on a personalized basis to help her/him find long-term pain relief and achieve a higher quality of life.

Symptoms of phantom limb pain differ from person to person. Some may experience mild sensations, while others may experience debilitating pain. Tingling, cramping, stabbing pains, heat and cold sensations can all be felt in the portion of the limb that was removed. Doctors note that any sensation that could have been felt in the limb prior to amputation may still be experienced once the limb is no longer attached. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our doctors are dedicated to using the most minimally invasive treatment techniques for our patients. We understand that you have already been through enough in losing a limb, and our goal is to provide the highest quality care in the least invasive method possible.
