“Empowering those with disabilities” is a common catchphrase, frequently used by those in the O&P profession. Most often, it refers to restoring physical mobility. But as those who serve amputees are well aware, healing is a process that involves the mind as well as the body. The psychology of acceptance, adjustment, and advancement is a vital part of building for future achievement. Those newly disabled often struggle to express their personal experiences and inner conflict, pressured by a need to quickly adapt and master unfamiliar skills.
