Event Description

Course Description
Sometimes referred to as Module 1, this introductory course is an excellent starting point on the journey of learning the fascial distortion model (FDM). FDM is an excellent modality to be used in the clinic, on the field, and in the emergency room for fast and effective results.

While there are some specific FDM techniques, emphasis will be placed on thinking and working in the model while using all manipulative modalities.

Attendees will be introduced to the theory of FDM while focusing on the shoulder, ankle and knee regions. Learn how FDM expands the toolbox you use to help more patients. This modality is valuable for any practitioner and no previous manipulation experience required.

All medical providers are invited to attend, including DOs, MDs, PTs, OTs, PAs, NPs, DPMs, etc.
