You’re Invited! Join the “Amputee Rehabilitation ERI Discussion Group” on Facebook

We’re excited to invite our therapist community to join the Amputee Rehabilitation ERI Discussion Group on Facebook. As therapists, many of us know that clinical expertise on limb loss can be difficult to obtain since the population is a small proportion of the rehabilitation caseload. Our new forum provides therapists the opportunity to ask questions, share treatment ideas, get advice, and connect with other therapists who treat patients with limb loss. 

Join us on Facebook for the Amputee Rehabilitation ERI Discussion Group– and be sure to invite your friends as we collaborate, engage, and discuss how we can improve our practice and patient outcomes.
