Phantom Pain


Phantom pain refers to the sensation of pain or discomfort in a limb or body part that has been amputated or is otherwise missing. This phenomenon is believed to be caused by changes in the brain and nervous system following the loss of the limb, leading to the perception of pain in the absent body part. Phantom pain can be challenging to treat and may significantly impact an individual's quality of life. A combination of therapies is usually recommended to address phantom pain, including medications to manage pain and inflammation, physical therapy, mirror therapy, and psychological support to help individuals cope with the emotional aspects of their condition.
