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 is required.

All medical providers are invited to attend, whether you are a DO, MD, PT, OT, PA, NP, DPM, DDS, DMD, ATC, DC, ND or a certified structural integration specialist.

Course Director(s)

Todd Capistrant, DO, MHA, has been a physician with Tanana Valley Clinic since 2006. He has held many positions with the clinic, but his practice focuses full-time on osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). Dr. Capistrant earned his osteopathic medical degree at the Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Iowa, and he completed a family medicine residency at the University of Minnesota-Bethesda Family Practice. Dr. Capistrant also received a master’s degree in healthcare administration from DMU. He specializes in OMM and is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

Dr. Capistrant’s medical interests include osteopathic manipulation, working with athletes to maximize performance, dance medicine, OMM for pregnant women, and FDM. He is one of six people certified to teach FDM in the U.S. He is a past president of the American Fascial Distortion Model Association, and he continues to serve on the board of that organization.
