FASCIAL DISTORTION MODEL

If you are unfamiliar with fascia, please take a moment to watch this short video that helps explain what fascia is:

THE FUZZ SPEECH (WHAT IS FASCIA?)

The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is an anatomical therapeutic approach in which many musculoskeletal injuries can be classified into six principal types of fascial distortions, each with its own body language and signature presentation. 

In the FDM approach, treatment is directed into the specific anatomical distortions of the capsule, ligments, and surrounding fascia, physically reversing them. When the fascial distortion are corrected, the anatomical injury no longer exists; the patient can resume normal function and is pain free.   

FDM is an efficient and effective method of envisioning and treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries.  Some common injuries that are easily resolved with FDM manual treatments include:

- pulled (strained) muscles

- twisted (sprained) ankles

- whiplash

- shin splints

- Osgood-Schlatter disease

- headaches

- shoulder pain

- frozen joints

- plantar fascitis 

- tendonitis

- low back pain

- sciatica

- carpal tunned syndrome

... and many others.
