Using one or two hands, massage your residual limb using a gentle kneading motion. Initially, be especially cautious when massaging over your sutured area.
Massage the entire residual limb.
Over time and once your sutures are removed, you can increase the pressure to massage the deeper soft tissues and muscles in your residual limb.
This should be done for at least 5 minutes 3-4 times daily. It can be done more often if it is found to be helpful in reducing phantom pain.
