The indications for a FDM treatment are generally a disorder of the musculoskeletal system characterized by chronic pain. Many disorders of the musculoskeletal system that have been difficult to treat or only healed very slowly in the past can now be treated much faster by employing fascial techniques so that the patient notes higher resilience or they are entirely pain free.
The “fascial distortion” model cannot be scientifically proved but the, at times, outstanding treatment results give every FDM therapist the right to question many other forms of therapy. For example, the theory that muscles shorten cannot now be supported. Someone who has had a “stiff shoulder” for over two years can, after FDM treatment, again regain full and unrestricted movement.
The treatment can be helpful for:
- Shoulder pain (e.g. impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, PHS, arthrosis and rotator cuff ruptures)
- Elbow and wrist pain (e.g. tennis and golfer elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Back-ache (e.g. slipped-disc, lumbago, sciatic pain and vertebral arthrosis)
- Hip pain (e.g. arthrosis, ISG blockages and tendinitis)
- Knee pain (e.g. patellar tendinitis, any form of twisting and cruciate ligament ruptures)
- Foot pain (e.g. sprains, torn ligaments, sprained ligaments)
- Every form of sport injuries
- Distortions, condylitis, arthrosis, lumbago, torn muscles or torn abductors
- And many more
