There are many treatments that have previously been described for PLP, but very few have proven effective in the long term. However, there is an increasing body of evidence suggesting that the root cause of PLP is the loss of the normal feedback to the central nervous system from the amputated or damaged parts of your limb.
Using TMR or RPNI surgery, it is now possible to provide that missing feedback. This provides patients with a predictable, reproducible, and durable solution to their PLP. Importantly, for patients where TMR or RPNI surgery is not suitable, there are also an increasing number of non-surgical methods for treating PLP including mirror therapy or augmented reality. At Relimb™, we can help you to access these treatments as well.
