Rehabilitation after amputation

For people with an amputation, MedifitReha offers a first-class rehabilitation programme

Wound care

At the beginning of your rehabilitation, wound healing will be the most important goal. The stitches will still be in your stump. You will need to protect your stump, but it is also important to work on your physical condition. In addition, the fluid in your stump should be reduced as much as possible. There are different methods for this. The rehabilitation doctor will discuss with you which method is most suitable for you.

Stand and walk with a prosthesis

Stand and gait training starts without a prosthesis. You will slowly expand this training by walking with an exercise prosthesis and with the help of aids. Before you are fitted with your own prosthesis, it is important that most of the fluid in your stump has disappeared. Your stump will not change much in size.

Progressive treatment

The aim is that after rehabilitation in our rehabilitation centre you can function as independently as possible at home, both with and without a prosthesis and/or aids. If, for example, you need a wheelchair, crutches, walker, or transport aids, these can be requested in consultation with you.

During the rehabilitation period, there will be regular attention for processing and accepting your amputation. If you feel the need, the psychologist/psychotherapist can guide you in processing and acceptance.

The duration of the treatment varies from person to person. It depends on the healing of your stump wound, your condition, and the speed with which you learn the skills. Together with the therapists, you will work towards being as independent as possible at the end of your treatment.

I trained hard with the therapists for 8 weeks. As a result, I now have much more stamina. I also feel much better. The healthy air on the Costa Blanca has also helped.

I was made to feel very comfortable by the lovely caring therapists. I also stayed in a nice apartment where I got some rest. These 6 weeks have made me a lot stronger and more confident.

Michael arrived in Moraira in a wheelchair and left with only a cane as a (temporary) support when walking. Far better than we had ever hoped for!

Really, what a fantastic rehabilitation center! Just got back 2.5 weeks after hip surgery. What a professional and lovely beautiful people! Highly recommended for anyone who gets "no" aftercare here, I recommend: go to Spain and Medifit ... health insurers reimburse this. Fantastic team!!

From the first moment that my wife Esther came to Spain to the last moment she was taken care of. Esther's recovery has been worked on both physically and spiritually and with success! We have never regretted it and will recommend it to anyone!
