  • Abstract In thirty‐two unilateral upper extremity amputees with and without phantom limb pain, various phantom limb phenomena were investigated. In general, the incidence of non‐painful phantom limb sensations was higher in patients with phantom limb pain than in pain‐free amputees. Kinesthetic and kinetic phantom limb sensations were reported more frequently than exteroceptive cutaneous sensations. There was a significant positive correlation between phantom limb pain and stump pain. Patients… CONTINUE READING
