About Phantom Limb Pain

Phantom limb pain (PLP) is the uncomfortable sensation that patients experience from a limb that is no longer a part of the body. In cases of severe injury, trauma, or illness, an extremity, such as an arm, leg, hand, or foot, may need to be surgically removed. In many instances, patients feel pain or itchiness from the limb that has been amputated. This phenomenon is believed to be caused by misplaced sensory information by the brain. Symptoms include the sensation of acute or chronic cramping or stabbing pain, burning, itching, or throbbing. These side effects can occur weeks or even months after a limb has been surgically removed. If you are suffering from phantom limb pain, we invite you to call Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX to learn about all of your treatment options.
