Why NMT should be considered as an option for patients with FND



Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) occurs due to a problem with the functioning of the nervous system, rather than by a specific physical neurological disease or disorder, and patients with FND can experience a wide range and combination of physical, sensory and/or cognitive symptoms that can be continuous, fluctuate or happen from time to time.

Common functional symptoms include, Physical/Motor Dysfunction, Sensory Dysfunction, Episodes of Altered Awareness and Concentration, Memory and Fatigue.

While treatment should always start with a clear and supportive explanation of the specific clinical features that have contributed to the FND diagnosis, there is clear evidence for the efficacy of certain treatments, for example, physiotherapy for the treatment of motor symptoms or occupational therapy for regaining confidence engaging in activities of daily living.
