It can be very frustrating and stressful to experience a functional movement disorder. Our multispecialty team works together to tailor treatment plans to your unique symptoms and needs. The team's goal is to improve your quality of life through therapy, exercise, and medications.
Your first evaluation appointment will be with a neurologist who reviews your medical history, examines you, and diagnoses your condition. Additional testing may be needed to make a diagnosis. Based on the diagnosis, your doctor will suggest treatments and referrals to other specialists:
Cognitive behavioral therapy or dialectical behavioral therapy
Neurobehavioral Clinic referral
You and your neurologist will plan follow-up visits, as needed.
