lower leg prosthetics AshevilleLower leg limb loss is the amputation of all or part of the leg below the knee. This type of limb loss can be caused by a variety of factors, including traumatic injuries, congenital conditions, and illnesses such as diabetes or peripheral artery disease.

Lower Leg Limb Loss Asheville, NC

Living with lower leg limb loss can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. The loss of a limb can make it difficult to perform everyday tasks, such as walking, running, and climbing stairs. However, with the help of prosthetic limbs, many individuals with lower leg limb loss are able to regain their mobility and independence.

Prosthetic limbs for lower leg limb loss come in a variety of styles and designs, each tailored to the individual's specific needs and goals. Some of the most common types of lower leg prosthetics include:

  1. Transtibial (below-the-knee) prosthetics: These prosthetics replace the lower leg below the knee and are designed to restore a natural gait pattern and improve balance and stability.
  2. Ankle-foot prosthetics: These prosthetics replace the foot and ankle and are designed to provide a stable base for standing and walking.
  3. Knee prosthetics: These prosthetics replace the knee joint and are designed to provide stability and mobility for individuals with above-knee amputations.

In addition to prosthetics, physical therapy and rehabilitation are also essential for individuals with lower leg limb loss. Physical therapy can help individuals regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion, as well as learn how to use their prosthetic limb effectively.

Living with lower leg limb loss can also have emotional impacts, such as depression, anxiety, and feelings of isolation, and issues with body image. Support groups and counseling can be helpful resources for individuals and their families.
