    Let’s talk about FND


    What is FND Part 1

    FND stands for Functional Neurological Disorder. It’s a condition where the nervous system doesn’t function properly, leading to a variety of symptoms that can affect movement, sensation, and function. In Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), the symptoms arise without a clear structural or biochemical issue in the nervous system, unlike other neurological disorders where such problems are identifiable. Instead, they’re thought to be due to a problem with how the brain functions or processes information.

    FND can cause a wide range of symptoms, including weakness or paralysis, tremors or shaking, sensory problems like numbness or tingling, and episodes of altered consciousness or seizures. These symptoms can be distressing and disabling, and they can vary widely from person to person.

    Because the symptoms of FND can be similar to those of other neurological conditions, it can sometimes be challenging to diagnose. However, with the right approach, including a thorough medical evaluation and possibly specialised tests, doctors can often diagnose FND and develop a treatment plan to help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

    Rehabilitation for FND

    A holistic approach through neuro-rehabilitation can be vital. Considering the interconnectedness of physical, cognitive, emotional, and social well-being. Our programs may incorporate a range of therapeutic modalities, including physical exercises, cognitive rehabilitation, mindfulness techniques, and psychosocial support.

    From our latest study conducted by our FND clinical team here at Reach, we can demonstrate great progress through our interventions, resulting in some outstanding functional outcomes.

    We will examine the condition and whether a functional approach does indeed give the best possible outcomes for these clients.

    But first, let’s look at the myths and facts around FND:


    • They’re making it up or malingering
    • They are just “imagining it” or just “worried well”
    • Those with FND are depressed, anxious or personality-disordered
    • They have all been sexually abused or traumatised


    • They’re no more likely to “make it up” than other patients
    • The symptoms are real and can be very distressing and disabling
    • Many people do not have obvious mental health problems
    • Many have not experienced trauma
