Fitness After Limb Loss

In the United States, nearly two million people are living with limb loss, with over 185,000 amputations occurring each year. 


Whether your limb loss is recent and you're transitioning from our amputee specialty inpatient program at Penn Rehab, or you just need additional support, outpatient physical therapy can be an important part in maximizing your both your independence and quality of life. Christopher Runkle, PT, DPT, CSCS shares how Penn Therapy & Fitness can partner with you for success. Click here to learn more about the impact of outpatient therapy after limb loss.



Heartfelt Thanks
