THE FASCIAL DISTORION MODEL (FDM)
by Stephen Typaldos D.O. – Typaldos Method
The FDM was first described by the American physician and osteopath Stephen Typaldos D.O. FDM attributes the causes of physical ailments and pain to various distortions of the body’s connective tissue (fascia).
FDM treatment generally consists of several different manual techniques applied by a certified FDM physician or therapist on the basis of a prior FDM diagnosis.
- In some cases, intense pressure is applied to specific points or along physical lines.
- Other manual techniques are performed through pulling or applying pressure to joint areas.
- Certain surface treatments of the most superficial layers of connective tissue can also lead to pain relief.
Areas of application on the locomotor system:
Acute pain brought on by sprains, tears and dislocations
- Cronic back, neck and shoulder pain
- Restricted mobility
FDM-certified physicians and therapists have completed a multi-level education program according to European Fascial Distortion Model Association (EFDMA) guidelines, guaranteeing efficient and expert patient treatment.
In my opinion:
- Massages are wonderful things
- We have to know when to apply them
If a patient comes to me with pain, I don’t do massage anymore. I use FDM in these cases. Why? Because I think FDM is just way more effective than massage.
When do I do massage then?
If the patient wants to relax and find a peaceful, quiet hour in my praxis.
