Event Description

Course Description
The Fascial Distortion Model is a model of thinking that allows clinicians to utilize patients’ gestures and verbal descriptions to focus soft tissue treatment for fast and effective relief of pain. By incorporating the FDM with traditional OMM techniques, powerful results can be achieved. By applying the FDM philosophy to your practice, you can decrease treatment time and improve outcomes. 

No previous experience with the FDM will be required. For those familiar with the FDM, this is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding. This will be an excellent introduction to the model and a good starting point on the journey of incorporating FDM into your practice. The second part of the course will be focused on incorporating the FDM with concepts such as visceral manipulation, cranial manipulation, dry needling, and frequency specific microcurrent therapy. The use of FDM in the pediatric population and FDM treatment of fractures also will be discussed.
