Functional Movement Disorders Program

re+active functional movement disorders program

Individualized and intensive program for returning to a full life with a functional movement disorder.

Our program includes:

  • Physical therapy

  • Occupational therapy with a focus on lifestyle intervention

  • Yoga therapy

  • Fitness and personal training

  • Coordination with medical and psychological professionals

  • The amount of therapy depends on the person.  We have had the most success in an intensive outpatient program 5 days per week for a minimum of two weeks.    

  • For everyone, we set up a free consult to determine if our program is a good fit for you. Complete our form beow to start the process.

Success story: person with FMD improving from one sided paralysis to playing basketball through participation in physical therapy and yoga therapy. 

Our philosophy:

  • Functional movement disorders are not  conversion disorders or "in your head".  Research and experience have shown that FMD results from problems with functional connectivity in the brain and the body.  We believe strongly in a definitive diagnosis made by a movement disorders specialist and working with a team for diagnosis and treatment.  

  • We believe in 100% recovery! We join you on a journey (and you are in the driver's seat) and are part of an interdisciplinary team that includes your physician, psychologist and other health professionals.  We also discuss and prepare for flare-ups and changes along your journey. 

  • Our therapy approach is strongly influenced by the research and principles of neuroplasticity.  We are driven by the ideas that the brain is plastic and while the connections might be skewed in FMD, we can re-establish healthy connections through movement, motor control, sensory training, autonomic control and addressing underlying physical limitations.  We implement a strong motor learning approach to treatment including principles of autonomy, external focus and enhanced expectations.
