Functional Neurological Disorder, previously known as Conversion Disorder, has an increasing frequency of diagnosis in Cairns and throughout Australia. It’s often present with other conditions, including Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Ehler’s Danos Syndrome and Post-Concussion Syndrome. Sadly, many FND patients report not feeling ‘heard’ when dealing with health professionals. At Wellness Embodied, our team are committed to listening and providing appropriate treatment and support.


FND symptoms vary from patient to patient. They include but are not limited to tremors, chronic pain, difficulties with walking and movement, as well as psychological distress and anxiety. At Wellness Embodied our team has a range of modalities and can provide comprehensive treatment to help you improve your current health state as much as possible. We will work with you towards your life goals and manage FND flare-ups when they occur.


We treat the person, not the body part. Our Cairns Physiotherapy and Allied Health team work collaboratively with you, providing comprehensive assessment and personalised treatment including hands on therapy and evidence-based rehabilitation in private rooms. Our team has a holistic approach to treatment and are 100% committed to our clients being able to live their best life. We also emphasise education, enhancing client understanding of FND and ways to manage it at home.


Functional Neurological Disorder treatment Cairns is provided by professional Physiotherapists and Allied Health workers at Wellness Embodied. Our facilities include two specific Rehabilitation gyms across our practices, as well as individual treatment rooms providing privacy and comfort.

When you’re able to commence rehabilitation exercise under guidance of our Cairns Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists, we can offer 1;1 or group options, with an exercise program tailored to you.


Both of our practices can operate as Cairns FND Clinics, thanks to appropriate staffing, facilities and resources. Treatment may include specific hands-on therapies, such as soft tissue release, medical acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy, taping, bracing and more.

Rehabilitation exercises might include: Mirror Box Therapy / Graded motor imagery for pain, Clinical Pilates, Balance exercise, Functional Strength training, Hydrotherapy, Vestibular Rehabilitation and more.
