Functional Neurological Disorders Program

re+active functional neurological disorders program

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is an umbrella term describing a neurologic condition in which the primary pathophysiological processes are alterations in functioning of brain networks rather than abnormalities of brain structures.  (Hallet, 2022)

 

 

 

 

Based on the scientific literature, we aim to create an individualized and integrated physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, and yoga therapy treatment program for returning to a full life with a functional neurological disorder.

Our philosophy:
  • Functional neurologic and functional movement disorders are not simply 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 recovery! We join you on a journey (and you are in the driver's seat) and are part of an interdisciplinary team. 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 can re-establish healthy connections through movement, motor control, sensory training, autonomic control, lifestyle, and addressing underlying physical limitations.  We implement a strong motor learning approach to treatment including principles of autonomy, external focus and enhanced expectations.

Our program includes:

  • Physical therapy with an emphasis on sensory, motor and autonomic control. 

  • Occupational therapy with a focus on lifestyle interventions.

  • Clinical Psychology for regaining control and improving emotional and cognitive brain health.

  • Yoga therapy

  • Fitness and personal training

  • Coordination with the medical team

  • The amount of therapy depends on the person.  We have had the most success in an intensive outpatient program 3-5 days per week for a minimum of two weeks.
