Research on Phantom Limb with and Without Pain

Nxt Gen PT Evidence: In 2009, Gagne et al speculated that amputees still have a virtual representation of their missing limb. They found that while some move the missing limb easily, it is more challenging for others. In addition, they found that some have pain and others do not (ie. phantom limb pain). Those who had pain, moved their affected (phantom) limb much slower.
Let that all settle in and let's discuss.
