After surgery, there are four phases of the rehabilitation process. Last time we examined Phase 2: Preprosthetic Training.  Today, we will examine Phases 3 & 4: Basic and Advanced Prosthetic Training. Phases 3: Basic Prosthetic Training During the basic prosthetic training phase, the patient will receive an initial prosthesis, and physical therapy will focus on: Gait training Progressive strengthening Balance Prosthetic management. During this phase, it is impor...
