Get Rid Of Problems With Your Prosthetic Leg

Schedule a consultation today!By Carey Bunch, CPO/L , Prosthetist

If you’re suffering from problems with your prosthetic leg, chances are you’re suffering from a poor fit. There are two major problems that lead to poor fit, but the solution to both is almost the same. Whether you’re battling a poor initial fit or you’re fighting parts that need to be replaced, you can banish your prosthetic leg problems with a trip to a qualified prosthetist.

Poor Initial Fit

Getting a proper fit is a moving target, particularly in the early stages of amputation. Fortunately, there are many ways to adjust a prosthesis to ensure optimal fit and reduce any physical limitations. This is why it is important for you to see a qualified prosthetist routinely throughout this process to ensure you have the best possible fit through every step. Once the fit is dialed in, you’ll be able to meet your personal mobility and activity goals without struggling with your prosthesis.

Parts Requiring Replacement

If you felt your prosthesis fit fine at one time, but now it just doesn’t seem right or you struggle with certain activities, it may be time to consider replacement. If you’ve recently picked up a new hobby and your prosthesis isn’t designed to do this activity, you’re going to struggle. A great example is running; the stresses of a 5k or marathon compared to a stroll in the garden are radically different and require a different set of components. Trying to stick it out with an improperly designed prosthesis could damage your prosthesis or worse cause you a great deal of pain and injury to your residual limb. If, on the other hand, you suddenly feel like you are struggling with activities that have never given you problems in the past, you need to visit your prosthetist to discuss your options. Don’t try to stick it out, because you risk a great deal of pain and injury to your residual limb.
