Helen Power, an upper arm amputee, has contacted us hoping for some advice. Helen hasn’t used a prosthetic for many years but has begun to get sporadic back pain so is keen to start using one again. Her GP has advised her to refer herself but she isn’t sure how or where to go about that, or if she’s likely to need physiotherapy first. Helen lives in York, North Yorkshire, so I’ve suggested she contact the York Limbless Support Group and have also advised her to post on the Forum, but we would welcome any further suggestions or advice.
You can leave comments under this post or contact us if you’d like to be put in touch with Helen directly.Tags: prosthetic, upper arm amputee, York Limbless Support Group
