Have below knee prosthetics, leg hurts, sore, difficulty walking, sitting. Other center?

My son has had 4 different below the knee prosthetics made by 3 different practioners. His leg hurts him most of the time and gets sore easily. He lost his leg 6 years ago. He is only 29 years old and really can't enjoy any of his previous activities as golfing, biking, hiking, snowboarding, even just walking and sitting. Is there a center that works with people that are hard to fit?

Thanks for writing to us.
The persistent pain in the knee prosthetic could be due to an ill fitting prosthetic, a nerve compression or a neuropathic pain. This needs a direct examination for diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
