Occasionally, sensation can be felt in a body part that has been amputated or removed. These sensations can be felt not only in “phantom limbs”, but also in other parts of the body that have been removed, such as eyes, fingers, and tongues.
When the sensation felt in the removed body part is painful, it can be difficult to cope with. Carolina Spine and Hand offers therapeutic injections to assist in the management of the pain until the phantom limb pains have passed. Pain-killing medications that are injected into the place where the phantom limb would attach to the body can reduce the painful sensation.
