    Unless the doc has an unusual reason NOT to have the patient prone, yes they should lie prone several times a day. It helps keep the hip flexors from drawing the stump upwards. Other than that asic rehab, dressing care, if the patient will be a candidate for prosthesis, there will be rewrapping and then application of a stump shrinker. (Think ski mask made out of stretch material).
