Combining the Absence of Electromagnetic Fields and Mirror Therapy to Improve Outcome for Persons with Lower-Limb Vascular Amputation: Letter to the Editor and in Response to Shannon Fillmore’s Letter to the Editor
We applaud Ms. Fillmore’s review of our paper and her enthusiastic support of continuing research in this area of study. Our study had promising results as a pilot study, and we wholeheartedly support her call for a long-term study in this area. It is a topic crucial to therapists, prosthetists, and mostly importantly to the many individuals who suffer from the effects of phantom limb pain which impacts their activities of daily living and quality of life.
