Taking Care of Your Body After an Amputation

Apr 5, 2023 |

Learning to accept your body after a limb loss can be challenging, but it’s a process that every member of our community has gone through. It’s also a process unique to each individual, but rest assured that the Amputee Coalition cares. We are here to support each one of you on the journey to recovery. 

“You’re not alone. You’re struggling with your limb loss now because your world has changed,” said Rex Burruss, who has a tri membral amputation. “Everything you do now will be adaptive. You will have to live a more considered life.” In the video, we outline three key areas to consider while taking care of yourself as an amputee. Hear directly from several people, including Rex, who are part of our resilient community and have learned through their own experiences.
