Functional or Psychogenic Movement Disorders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Functional movement disorders (FMD) pose a challenge to neurologists. A careful exam and history, as well as experience evaluating abnormal movements, are needed to accurately diagnose FMD. Treatment is most effective when implemented early in the course of symptoms, and should include a multi-disciplinary approach combining the expertise of neurology, psychiatry, and rehabilitation. Although some patients may improve or remit, many patients experience chronic symptoms and a high degree of disability. Functional imaging studies have helped elucidate underlying mechanisms and may lead to better treatments in the future
