“My first prosthetic legs caused sores on the inside of my groin, and pain on the bottom after just a couple of hours of walking. After trying several different options, I began to think it was just me.
The shape of my leg was different, so I had problems with it coming off when I would sit or walk. This made it hard just to do the simple things every day. It was really frustrating.
I was not ready to give up on living the life I knew I wanted. After searching far and wide, I met Stan Patterson and the POA team. Within a week they had me up and walking on a leg that didn’t cause me pain, that fit and felt like a part of me.
It was that day I knew I wanted to do for others what POA did for me!
Your prosthesis should fit comfortably, discomfort is not something that you should “get used to.” Any pain will likely get worse with time, not better. Don’t settle for less than what you deserve, you are not the problem.”
