PROSTHETICS FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the most common questions people ask us about prosthetics, but please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to talking with you!

  • Feeling your toes is referred to as a phantom sensation.  A phantom sensation is a feeling that seems to originate from a part of the body that is missing.  Phantom sensation/pain can present in other ways, such as pain in the knee or ankle, itchy skin, or cramping of muscles.  The cause of this phenomenon is not clearly understood.  Some believe that it originates from a psychological source, in that the body has not adjusted to the removal of a body part.  Some believe that it originates from the nerves being severed at some mid-point.  This is a very common experience after an amputation.  There are several techniques people have found useful to treat the sensations or pain and usually the pain will lessen significantly after fit with your prosthesis.
