5-Day FASCIAL DISTORTION MODEL MODULE 1&2 COURSE, with Beatrix Baumgartner – Johannesburg ; 18-22 October 2017
Course times; 1-8pm on day 1,2,3; 8.30-5pm on days 4,5.
The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is a specific medical approach which attributes the cause of physical afflictions and impaired motor function to one or several of six typical forms of fascial distortion in the human organism. As soon as the distortion is corrected, an effective and comprehensively measurable treatment of pain and sestricted mobility is possible.
In FDM, the diagnostic process is based on three pillars of analysis. Particular attention is directed at a patient’s body language when describing pain. Intuitive gestures, when correctly interpreted, are direct indicators of fascial distortions. The patient’s case history as well as a series of examinations complete the FDM diagnosis.
Unique position features of FDM
- Pain gesture is the most important pillar of diagnostics in FDM, thus enabling direct contact with the patient´s proprioception
- The patient´s pain gesture and body language are simply being decoded and made use of for medical treatment. That way the patient becomes the expert who leads the therapist quickly and efficiently towards a successful treatment.
- FDM makes communication with the patient possible at eye level and thus results in a very intense interaction with the patient
- Treatment is often intensely perceptible and therefore particularly high demands are placed on the therapist´s competence concerning respect ant attentiveness towards the patient
- Patients confirm frequently that the therapist has understood their problems
- The therapist does not only have immediate influence of the painful situation but also on the patient´s proprioception
- In the framework of FDM the approach is integrated to raise the patient´s motivation to conduct physical activity
- FDM brings quick results and can immediately be observed
- The application of FDM is mainly done manually – thus expensive equipment is not necessary
- The concept was developed by Stephen Typaldos from practice for practice, can be learned easily and applied immediately
- FDM can be learned in 3 modules opening immediately a wide area of application ranging from office people to competitive sports
- We offer the highest FDM standard in the curriculum and for certification
- The structuredness of the model and the modular system contribute to its easy way of learnability and high relevance for practice
- High reliability between the therapists
- Model (from the book)
Reproducibility: FDM as a Model always produces the same results under the same circumstances. The precondition is a high degree of reliability
The predictability: FDM as a model can predict certain results/ events.
