€phantom limb pain is not explained or predicted by any one theory.” -there are three theories being researched with regard to plp. the peripheral nervous system theory implies that sensations remain as a result of severing peripheral nerves during the amputation. the central nervous system theory states that plp results from a loss of inhibitory signals that are generated through afferent impulses from the amputated limb. the psychological theory helps predict and explain plp in that stress, anxiety, and depression often trigger or worsen an episode of plp. focus: prioritization
