Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) with Thorsten Fischer – Basic

Aeroparc Gilze-Rijen Coffee/tea, lunch & syllabus English
Basic Course:
  • General introduction to the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM)
  • General principles of examination and treatment
  • Specific examination and treatment of shoulder, knee and ankle with the Typaldos method

Fasciae are connective tissue structures which, from an FDM point of view, are the key to diagnosis and treatment for physical complaints. Today medical science recognizes the important role of the fascial system in the human body and supports FDM considerations by an increasing number of scientific studies.


Distortions are twists, deformations or dislocations of connective tissue. The aim of each FDM treatment is to correct the distortions of the fasciae with targeted, specific treatment techniques (e.g. with the maneuvers of the Typaldos method). Once corrected the presenting complaint is noticeably reduced.


FDM diagnosis is based on four pillars and leads to an independent FDM diagnosis. In this context the interpretation of the patients’ body language and subjective descriptions is of major significance. With precise observation intuitive gestures can be decoded thus providing direct clues about the presence of the 6 fascial distortions. Case history and examination complement the FDM assessment.

The FDM can be applied in various medical fields. It expands the diagnostic options of doctors or therapists and often facilitates an effective treatment of patients with varied medical diagnoses by integrating the patient into the process.

Currently the FDM approach is successfully used for complaints of the locomotor system, neruologogically interpreted complaints and for pain therapy.

The aim of every FDM intervention trough the patient- oriented approach is to correct the anatomical arrangement of the fasciae. Once the fascial distortion is corrected, an immediate improvement of the loading capacity, mobility and/or pain reduction can be expected. Long periods of rest are not necessary and rapid resumption of activity is possible.
