Stephen Typaldos D.O.

Stephen Typaldos D.O. – – the founder of FDM – was employed as a doctor/osteotherapist.

Typaldos recognised that his patients always described their complaints with specific descriptions and gestures. With this in mind, he developed a unique diagnostic concept in which body language and description play a major role. This specific diagnosis then leads to a harmonised therapy.


This new diagnostic and therapy concept is far more promising than traditional methods of therapy. It is suspected that pain and malfunctions of the body are caused by various connective tissue (fascia distortion).
This has led to a number of treatment approaches for various illnesses.

Das führt zu einer Fülle neuer Behandlungsansätze unterschiedlicher Erkrankungen.
