Completion of Prosthetic Program
Once physical therapy starts, the average person takes approximately three to four months to reach full-day usage with a one-point cane. Results vary as there are different personalities and medical conditions. Some patient needs have taken a year to accomplish their prosthetic goals. Appointments can number 13 to 18 to complete their prosthetic goals.
O&P Associates’ rehabilitation goal is to empower you with knowledge, choices and involvement in your prosthetic program.
O&P Associates' team will be by your side as you navigate your journey as an amputee.
