Fascial Distortion Model FDM Book.zipx (Size: 8.73 MB)
The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is an anatomically based perspective for envisioning and treating orthopedic injuries and certain medical conditions that until now have been either resistant to treatment or healed slowly or incompletely with current methods. American physician Stephen Typaldos, D.O., is the originator and developer of the FDM.
Since its conception in 1991, Dr. Typaldos has written, taught, and promoted the fascial distortion model approach to physicians and international osteopaths across the United States, Europe, and Japan. (In German, FDM is translated as "fasziendistorsionsmodell" and in Japanese it is "kinmaku waikyoku yousiki.")
The clinical significance of the FDM is that through its manual application it can bring rapid and complete recovery to a large number of previously inadequately treated musculoskeletal injuries such as pulled muscles, ankle sprains, frozen shoulders, knee strains and a whole host of other athletic injuries. The FDM, however, is far more than just a collection of new manipulative techniques. Instead it is a comprehensive and entirely fresh perspective of envisioning and understanding injuries that competitively challenges current approaches and is poised to revolutionize the practice of medicine.
