Keywords:Transtibial, amputation, treatment, rehabilitation.
Introduction: The case study is focused on the treatment of an individual with a residual limb after a
transtibial amputation. The main goal is to help provide a greater understanding of how to treat the residual
limb after transtibial amputation.
Case Description: The case study focuses on a 65 year old female who recently underwent a transtibial
amputation of the left lower extremity because of chondrosarcoma of distal tibia. The patient was
mesomorphic and had a history of tumor. Physical therapy provided care in ways including wound care,
therapeutic exercise, gait training and prosthetic fitting and training.
Conclusion: The patient progressed well because of her motivation to continue physical therapy and the
proper management. After much hard work, by both the patient and the therapist, the patient was able to
ambulate house distances without assistance. For the patient’s age, it was remarkable to be able to progress
to the current functional status which she attained.
