Proactive Rehabilitation & Wellness

Your guides to better health!

At Proactive Rehabilitation & Wellness, we have a passion for providing high quality therapy to individuals who have any type of amputation throughout the rehabilitation process that begins pre-operatively and continues until the maximum functional level is achieved (including work and athletic pursuits.)

ProActive clinicians have training and experience treating hundreds of amputees since 1989. We have experience training clients to use all types of prosthetics, including upper extremity body-powered, myoelectrics and hybrids; and lower extremity mechanical and microprocessor-controlled. We have treated dozens of bilateral amputees using both conventional prostheses and foreshortened prostheses (“stubbies”.) We have enjoyed training both above- and below-knee amputees to run, play basketball, golf and play disc golf.

Amputee Rehabilitation

 

Several unique characteristics of the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) bring together a “perfect storm” of factors that result in a higher-than-average population of individuals with amputation.

The area has a level 1 trauma center, a regional burn center, an extensive medical community with several orthopedic and vascular surgery groups, and a variety of manufacturing plants. Augusta has been described as “the buckle of the stroke belt” with heredity and lifestyle factors that contribute to stroke, cardiovascular disease and many chronic medical problems known to be risk factors for amputation. As a result, ProActive therapists have training and experience treating hundreds of amputees since 1989.

We have experience training clients to use all types of prosthetics, including upper extremity body-powered, myoelectrics and hybrids; and lower extremity mechanical and microprocessor-controlled.

We have enjoyed training both above- and below-knee amputees to run, play basketball, golf and play disc golf.

 

ProActive Rehabilitation & Wellness uses a wholistic, biopsychosocial treatment approach to meet the complex needs of amputees. Our facility features an overhead ceiling harness system to allow over-ground and treadmill walking without the possibility of falling. We collaborate with all prosthetic providers in the CSRA to achieve optimal outcomes.

Diane Wilson, PT, CEAS II has published articles on the topic of amputee rehabilitation, presented seminars for continuing education units to Workers Compensation case managers and other rehabilitation professionals, volunteered to perform gait assessment and training at national amputee conferences, and facilitated an amputee support group.
