Functional Movement Disorder

Bloom Physical Therapy specializes in treatment of Functional Neurological Disorders, including Functional Movement and Gait Disorder.

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is like a software issue of the brain and nervous system, which means that there is hope for recovery.

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is an umbrella term that includes motor, sensory, or cognitive symptoms. According to NORD, it’s defined as “a medical condition in which there is a problem with the functioning of the nervous system and how the brain and body sends and/or receives signals, rather than a structural disease process such as multiple sclerosis or stroke. FND can encompass a wide variety of neurological symptoms, such as limb weakness or seizures.” – NORD.

  Although this definition was taken from the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), FND is much more common than you might expect. You are not alone.

Functional Neurological Disorders may include functional weakness, sensory disorders, dizziness, movement disorders, gait disorders, tremor, dystonia, dissociative events or functional seizures, or cognitive disorders.

Bloom Physical Therapy uses the concepts of neuroplasticity and motor learning to help you rediscover movement and connection with your body.
