If you have been diagnosed with a functional movement disorder you and your medical team may be at a loss with how to get help to move better and indeed how to find a health professional who understands the condition. We are one of the only sites in Australia to offer a dedicated Multi-disciplinary approach to helping you with your condition.

Based on the latest literature and best practice internationally, an intensive block of therapy has been shown to influence the brain and muscle connections which are disrupted in this condition. Following an initial assessment with the Rehabilitation Consultant and neuro physiotherapist a tailor-made program of therapy will be discussed focusing on the achievement of clear goals.

Working with a team who understand your condition is key. Part of your program will focus on education around strategies develop self – management tools outside of therapy sessions. This is to enhance your chances of successful outcome and to ensure that you know exactly what you need to be doing to continue on with this beneficial exercise approach. You will receive an workbook to bring to sessions which discusses aspects of the condition and how to best manage them.
