This film, entitled ‘War Neuroses’, is the most well known footage of ‘shell shock’ – the term used to describe a range of conditions seen in soldiers during world war one which include FND.
The film was made by Dr Arthur Hurst a physician who treated patients at Netley in Hampshire and Seale Hayne in Devon. Many of the patients had a mixture of physical and/or psychological injuries and FND
Some of the footage appears to have been reconstructed, but the original data from the time indicates a compassionate and multidisciplinary approach to treatment from which modern medicine has much to learn.
We will be re-directing you to the University of Edinburgh’s donate page, which enable donations in a secure manner on our behalf. We use donations for keeping the site running and further FND research.
