This course offers a comprehensive perspective for management of the limb loss patient. Clinical expertise can be difficult to obtain since this population is a small proportion of the rehabilitation caseload.

The class addresses the medical issues and common complications that place limbs at risk. Attendees will learn to make educated clinical decisions to improve function. This dynamic course addresses limb loss due to diabetes, vascular disease, trauma, cancer, sepsis and congenital issues. Current guidelines recommend therapy interactions start pre-operatively and continue through the lifespan of the patient. New technology, surgical techniques and futures directions are included in discussion. Many of the techniques described in the course can be applied to patient populations with limbs at risk and the multitrauma patient. The course is primarily lecture with multiple video clips taken throughout of the continuum of care. There will be demonstrations and hands-on experiences intermixed with lecture. Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Design, implement and modify an individual rehabilitation program using up to date techniques for common co-morbidities and with knowledge of the life-time needs of this population • Identify movement and posture dysfunction that can be address with therapy interventions efficiently and recognize when other disciplines may need to be consulted • Identify and address frequent complications such as phantom pain, residual limb pain, low back pain and skin integrity • Discuss upper extremity loss and address ADLs by problem solving the functional eficit • Recognize questions the patient may have regarding the entire spectrum of rehabilitation and identify the role in a team to maximize outcomes.
