What is FDM?
The Fascial Distortion Model is defined as “a treatment model in which virtually all soft tissue injuries, or musculoskeletal complaints, are viewed through 1 or more of the 6 different types of alterations to the body’s connective tissues.”
This model allows a physical therapist to use a patient’s verbal and physical descriptions, relevant orthopedic tests, and mechanism of injury to determine which form of soft tissue treatment needs to take place.
The six types of distortions that the FDM at Fit Physical Therapy may apply to are as follows:
- Continuum Distortions
