Toe Amputation because of bones were severed

Hi, Two of my daughters toes were amputated because the bones were severed and she has been in a spint for about 1 month and should be in a few more weeks. When I change her dressing I have noticed she will not move her foot its like it is stuck in that position. Will she need therapy and what can I be doing to help ?

I think she need post surgical exercises. Were they done, you can contact a physical and rehab specialist. The orthopedician should have recommended you that.
