Chiropractic Treatments for Functional Neurological Disorder
Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a neurological condition that can cause a variety of physical symptoms, including pain, fatigue, and movement problems. FND can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Fortunately, chiropractic care may be able to provide relief for some FND-related symptoms.
How can Chiropractic Care Help with FND Symptoms?
Chiropractors are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal issues, including those associated with FND. A chiropractor may use spinal manipulation techniques to release tension in the spine that could be causing pain or mobility issues. Additionally, they may utilize massage therapy to relax tense muscles in the back and neck.
A chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle changes to help alleviate FND symptoms. This could include reducing stress, practicing yoga or other forms of exercise regularly, eating healthy meals, and getting enough sleep each night. As many people with FND find it difficult to stay active due to their physical limitations, a chiropractor can provide tips on how to stay active without exacerbating symptoms.
Chiropractors can also recommend other treatments that might be beneficial for FND patients. This includes physical therapy or occupational therapy sessions or referral to a primary care provider if necessary. A chiropractor will take into account all aspects of your health—physical and mental—when creating a plan for treatment that works best for you.
