Functional neurological movement disorders
Functional movement disorders include motor dysfunctions which are not explained by relevant neurological examination. The prevalence of the disorders is relatively high (10-15%) within an ordinary neurological patient group. Untreated, prognosis for the conditions is poor, and neurological imaging has not yet provided explanatory hypotheses. Treatment studies are sparse, but a heterogenous group of studies of intense, multidisciplinary treatment programmes all point toward good and promising treatment effects. This is not reflected in the actual treatment capacity in Denmark.
