The Treatment and Management of Phantom Limb Syndrome

dc.contributor.authorElfigih, Seraj Omar B.
dc.descriptionPhantom limb syndrome, the ability to feel sensations and even pain in a limb or limbs that no longer exist. Phantom limb pain (PLP) is characterized by both nonpainful and painful sensations. Nonpainful sensations can be divided into the perception of movement and the perception of external sensations (exteroception), including touch, temperature, pressure, vibration, and itch. PLP occurs in 50%−80% of limb amputees and is known to be highly fluctuant, the pain sensations range from burning and shooting pains to feelings of tingling “pins and needles.” While phantom limb syndrome occurs only in amputees, phantom sensations may be perceived in people who have survived strokes but lost function of certain body parts or who have spinal cord injury or peripheral nerve injuryen_US
