Approximately 2 million people in the Unites States alone have had an amputation, and many of these people use a prosthetic limb daily. The prosthetic limb, which began as a primitive device, is now a highly sophisticated piece of technology. It is because of many devoted scientists that we now have access to this life-transforming device. There are many causes for amputation; a few causes included disease, accidents, and congenital conditions. Although missing a limb can be life-altering, health care teams consisting of physicians, physical therapists, and orthotists are dedicated to helping people return to everyday activities and to excel in their pursuits.
