Fostering a successful relationship with your healthcare providers is crucial to ensure the best possible outcome for you. The importance of the relationship you have with your prosthetist cannot be overemphasized because you will be working together towards a common goal for a long time.

When choosing the prosthetist that is right for you, it may be helpful to sit down and talk with each one about the different goals and priorities you have. You can learn more about the practitioners at JP&O on our website.  It is also helpful to find someone whose office is located close to you. JP&O has a number of locations throughout Arkansas and Southern Missouri.

Losing a limb means you must work hard to reach your goals. We have found that the best results occur when a group of professionals come together to provide individuals with the right tools they need to succeed. Communicate clearly with your prosthetist to make sure that they have an understanding of your goals and needs.

It is important that you discuss your priorities and preferences to feel secure and confident in the work that your healthcare professionals are doing. Be sure to discuss all of your health issues with your prosthetist so they can determine the best options for future care.

Your prosthetic device is designed based on considerations such as your overall health, anticipated activity level, strength and flexibility, and interests. Both the socket of your device and the attached components will require regular maintenance and replacement to make sure that they function correctly.

This makes a good working relationship with your prosthetist critical to help you achieve your goals. Each and every practitioner at JP&O is dedicated to the success of our patients.
