Non-Drug Therapies


A movement disorder specialist may recommend non-drug approaches in conjunction with traditional  treatments.

Non-drug approaches may include physical and  occupational therapy as well as speech or voice therapy if appropriate. These approaches empower the  individual with techniques to help achieve greater  awareness and control over the body. Feel free to ask  your movement disorder specialist about the following non-drug approaches:

  • Physical therapy with a physical therapist who  specializes in neurological conditions
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech and/or voice therapy
  • Relaxation and stress management                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Page last updated 2020
