Prosthetic limbs make living a more normal life possible for amputees. Although there are still challenges, a prosthetic limb can help you get back to the things you used to do after an amputation. For most people we fit for prosthetic limbs at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics, the ensuing process after amputation is as follows.
While amazing, prosthetic limbs can take time and patience to get used to. After an amputation, be patient with yourself and know that it can take several months until using your prosthesis becomes a routine part of your daily life.
Since 2014, Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics has become the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area’s preferred source for orthotics, prosthetics, diabetic footwear, mastectomy prosthetics, and shoe inserts.
