The term Functional Movement Disorder refers to a common neurologic condition that can be characterized a disturbance in the normal functioning of brain with respect to how it communicates with the body, rather than damage or disease. Individuals living with a Functional Movement Disorder can present with a wide variety of debilitating impairments including:

  • Tremor
  • Weakness
  • Difficulty walking
  • Incoordination
  • Abnormal muscle tone
  • Pain
  • Impaired sleep
  • Sensory disturbances
  • Dysregulated heart rate or blood pressure

Physical and occupational therapy have been shown to be very effective in helping individuals with FMD achieve a full recovery. The therapist at ANR will use their expertise and knowledge of FMD to develop an individualized plan of care. A holistic approach to care is necessary given the global impairments often seen with FMD.
