Amputation Rehab Edmonton | Family® Physiotherapy

Did you recently have amputation surgery? Family physiotherapy can provide the necessary care to relieve your pain.

Accepting an amputation surgery isn’t an easy decision due to the life changes associated with it. As much as amputation helps to protect your health, it can also lead to temporary or permanent disability, affects physical appearance, limits movement, and lowers productivity 

Not able to withstand the changes prone to happen after amputation? Family Physiotherapy provides rehabilitation programs to cater to amputated victims after being discharged from the hospital. We combine both post-surgical and amputation rehabilitation programs to help such victims ease pain and fasten their recovery process and make them walk. If you are about to undergo amputation surgery, we also have a pre-surgical rehab program to prepare you and increase your chances of having a successful surgery, this is proven in many studies.
