Desensitization

Desensitization is important to prepare your residual limb for the forces that will soon be applied with a prosthesis.

The most common and easiest way to desensitize the limb is to gently massage the entire area several times a day; this will decrease the skins sensitivity. There are several different techniques, you should speak with your physical therapist about which one is best for you.
