FASCIAL DISTORTION MODEL

FASCIAL DISTORTION MODEL

Definition

what is the fascial distortion model?

The Fascial Distortion Model was developed by the American osteopath Dr. Stephen Typaldos, who discovered six so-called distortions by means of empirical methods. These distortions are mechanical complications in the fascial structure which can be alleviated in no time with certain manual grasps developed by him. Body language and, if available, the patient’s accident often indicate clearly which issue (distortion) is at hand and which manual grasp is to be applied.

Treatment

when is the fascial distortion model applied?

This treatment technique derived from osteopathy can often achieve results quickly. It’s important for our patients to understand that the treatment with this model calls for a certain tolerance of pain and therefore cannot be performed with every patient. Increasingly this technique is applied to athletes directly on the field to support reinstating an operational modus with quick and targeted manual grasps. As with all limitations, the older and well established the dysfunctionality is, the longer it takes to heal.

Should indications arise during the therapy that this form of treatment is called for, the therapist will inform you in detail about the procedure. Of course the consent of the patient is imperative for this form of treatment.
