The Fascial Distortions Model (FDM)
FDM offers a new way of looking at your complaints or their causes.
Stephen Typaldos D.O. - Pioneer of FDM
Stephen Typaldos D.O. was born in the USA in 1957. After graduating as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, he worked as a physician and emergency room physician in the hospital as well as in his own practice.
Beginning in 1991, Typaldos began to develop a completely new model of diagnosis and treatment through close observation of his patients. By looking and listening closely, he realized that patients intuitively know which treatment steps are important for them. This is because they express this through typical gestures and words. The targeted manual treatment based on this was immediately effective and relieved pain.
This motivated Stephen Typaldos to accurately describe and publish both the FDM view and the treatment method. He published his findings in medical journals and wrote several reference books on the fascial distortion model (FDM).
Stephen Typaldos D.O. passed away unexpectedly on April 5, 2006 at the age of 49. Since then, his students and companions in Europe, the U.S., Japan and Africa have founded the FDM Association and thus ensure recognized quality standards for FDM training as well as cross-cultural medical exchange on the fascial distortion model.
