An amputation may occur as the result of trauma or disease. Either way, people with amputations face many hurdles on their road to recovery. In many cases, the physical pain related to the amputation injury is dwarfed by the emotional impact as the individual must re-live the incident that lead up to the amputation on a daily basis.
