Amputations are catastrophic injuries that result in the loss of a limb. They may be caused by a car accident, industrial accident or a failed surgical attempt to save a limb. Amputations are classified as either major (above or below the knee, forearm, above the elbow, etc.), or minor (digits, partial foot, etc.).
Catastrophic injury covers a diverse range of impairments, which include but are not limited to: serious head or spinal injuries, severe bone fractures, paralysis, loss of limbs or the use of limbs and loss of vision or hearing.
Of all the injuries that can change one’s life, chronic pain is possibly one of the most damaging. Chronic pain can occur anywhere in the body and it is characterized by persistent and debilitating discomfort that affects the ability to move, work and live as you once were able.
