Intact Limb Pain

December 6, 2012

Overuse syndrome is well documented in amputees, where additional and atypical amounts of time and pressure are borne down through the intact limb. Over time, this can and will cause early degeneration of the lower back, hip, knee and ankle resulting in discomfort and other complications. This becomes even more important if there are injuries to the intact limb, which make it even more critical that the prosthesis be designed to evenly bear the load and smooth out every step in your gait.
