The fascial distortion model (FDM)

1 & 2 of February

“The fascial distortion model (FDM) is an anatomical perspective in which the underlying etiology of virtually every musculoskeletal injury (and many neurological and medical conditions as well) is considered to be comprised of one or more of six specific pathological alterations of the body’s connecting tissues. This model not only allows for strikingly effective manipulative treatments for diverse afflictions such as pulled muscles, fractures, and frozen shoulders, but the results are objective, obvious, measurable, and immediate.”

FDM was developed by US physician Stephen TYPALDOS D.O. in the 1990s on an empirical basis. He proposed that fascial tissue plays a major role in understanding human body mechanics and is the key to better understand symptoms and deficits injured patients experience. His therapeutical manual approach, the Typaldos method, aims to correct so-called fascial distortions, which are from an FDM perspective the major generators of pain and impaired function.

FDM training, according to the European FDM Association, is organized in a basic curriculum, composed f 3 modules. Each module consists of at least 20 units (UE). 

Module 1 is the entry in the FDM training and must be completed first. Modules 2 and 3 can be completed in a different order, but it is recommended to visit module 2 before 3.

• General examination and treatment principles

He continued his professional training at the Vienna School of Osteopathy WSO and finished with a Master’s degree in Osteopathy. Additionally he holds a french diploma in osteopathy. In his office in Vienna (A) he focuses on the manual application of the Fascial Distortion Model FDM and the Typaldos Method. Since 2011 he lectures the FDM in various European countries like Austria, Germany, Poland and France and presents on international congresses like on the Fascia Research Congress 2012 in Vancouver and 2015 in Washington DC. From 2011 to 2017 he was president of the European Fascial Distortion Model Association (EFDMA), a non-profit organization with the aim to establish the FDM in the medical world.
