Dr. S. Typaldos D.O.

The Fascia Distorsion Modell (FDM)

A new and effective method of pain therapy

In 1991 the American doctor for emergency medicine, Dr. Stephen Typaldos D.O., discovered regularly recurring models in the pain description of his patients. Thereupon he built up a novel concept of diagnosis which is based on the body language and description of the symptoms of the patients.

The patient as the expert of his body.

For me as therapist, it was an unbelievable and educational experience when I was allowed to learn from Stephen Typaldos that the patient himself was the expert for a successful treatment of his ailments. Through his body language and the exact description of his symptoms, he shows the therapist the right choice of methods for the treatment. He becomes a “compass” for the therapist to localize the respective fascial distortions to be able to treat them. The patient takes part in the treatment and can trust his own perceptions. In FDM only the patient is right!

Healthy quickly and active again.

Typaldos new and effective treatment of pain the musculoskeletal system enjoys greater and greater popularity because of the fast and longterm treatment success. The individual diagnostis allows a focused and efficient treatment. The immediate removal of the so called distortion leads to minimal absence from work or sports and regeneration time. So it`s possible that e.g. the back pain disappear after one treatment. This therapy is also very effective against:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Arthrosis
  • Slipped disc
  • Knee pain
  • Joint blockage
  • Sprains
  • Hip pain
  • Heel spur
  • Torn ligaments
  • Inflamed tendons

FDM in sport: flexible and variable

Because of the immediate improvement of the pain after the treatment, this method is enjoying a constantly growing popularity among therapists and patients and meanwhile is becoming successful in major sports e.g. in the German national soccer team. Because no medicine or rest is needed after the FDM, it is an attractive tool in both major sports and hobby sports.

Beyond the musculoskeletal system many unclear ailments can be treated without medical explanation. These include e.g.:

  • headache
  • horsethroat
  • tinnitus
  • digestive disorders
  • migraines
  • dizziness

Because the respective area of pain is worked upon during the treatment, the treatment itself can be somewhat unpleasant. However directly afterwards an improvement of the ailment frequently occurs.

Twisted fascia can lead to both ailments of the musculoskeletal system and to problems of the organs, too. All of these distortions can be corrected trough specific treatment techniques.
