Dear visitor of our video gallery!
The treatment according to the rules of the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is an extremely successful solution for all therapists and doctors who are looking for a “hands-on” therapy. Visual diagnosis and brand new hands-on treatment techniques are highly effective and provide quick results.
We would like to thank all patients for agreeing to the video recordings and the FDM-colleagues for providing them, in particular Mr. Keisuke Tanaka, head of the Japanese FDM Association. Watching the videos, you will recognize the pain body gesture, but you will not yet be able to interprete the „human pain code“. All skills for the diagnostic analysis, you will learn in our training courses. Additionally, in the videos you see patients, sometimes feel pain during the treatment procedure. Don´t worry! Patients tolerate that kind of pain, because they immediately recognize the benefit of the FDM-treatment!
Treatment of paragliding pilot after an accident
Case study of the treatment of a patient with a shoulder fracture after a paragliding accident, based on the Fascial Distortion Model according to Stephen Typaldos.
Young athlete after a muscle sprain during a soccer match. Pre-treatment: Resting, forearm crutches. Assessment of the pain body language and clinical test of range of motion in the knee joint. Subsequent treatment according to the Fascial Distortion Model. After this treatment, significant improvement of the range of motion of the knee joint. Next, assessment of the remaining complaints and corresponding follow-up care. Subsequently, free sprinting is possible again.
Duration of the treatment: approximately 20 min.
Twisted ankle injury
Twisted ankle injury with suspected bone injury of the distal fibula
Young patient, status post ankle sprain a week ago. Immobilization in plaster splint for three weeks. Removal of the plaster splint, local severe swelling. Assessment of the pain body language and testing of the restricted dorsiflexion.
Improvement of dorsal extension with an FDM technique; at the same time, subjective pain relief and load-bearing capacity (squatting, jumping). Duration of the treatment: approximately 10 min.
Assessment of the pain body language and clinical test with weights. After the first treatment already significant improvement. Through the second treatment in the same session, able to lift a chair with extended arm during testing.
Duration of the treatment: approximately 10 min.
Acute low back pain
Treatment of knee pain which occurred spontaneously two weeks ago. Treatment to date: Immobilisation, no weight-bearing, NSAIDs. However, no substantial change achieved. MRI images were not diagnostic; an arthroscopy was initially refused by the patient who decided to see Dr Tanaka: Clinical tests showed significant restriction of extension and flexion, one-leg stand and squatting not possible. At the same time, assessment of the pain body language (a location at the lateral knee indicated, so-called lateral knee trigger band). After the treatment, significant improvement of all findings. Therapy duration: approximately 10 min.
