After an amputation it is common to feel weak and unsteady. This is why it is important to begin stretching and exercise as soon as you are able.
There are many different types of exercises; some can be done while lying in bed, some standing, some sitting, and more. At times, home exercise is important and at other times you may need to visit your physical therapy clinic. Your physical therapist will be able to explain and demonstrate these and/or other exercises that are appropriate and beneficial for you.
