What is the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM)?

The Fascial Distortion Model is an innovative and effective approach to treating musculoskeletal pain. It declares that distortions in the fascia—the band of connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs—cause many physical pains and dysfunctions.

How Does FDM Work?​

FDM addresses six primary types of fascial distortions, each with symptoms, signs, and treatment techniques.


Involves linear tension bands within the fascia causing pain and limiting motion.

Folding Distortions

Results in postural changes and misalignments, leading to slow-developing, chronic conditions.

Tectonic Fixations

Refers to distortions affecting the intra-articular fascia within joints, causing joint-related pains.

Herniated Trigger Points

Manifests as small, herniated portions of fascia that cause intense, sharp, or stabbing pains.

Cylinder Distortions

Impacts the fascia surrounding cavities in the body, leading to pressure-like pain.

Continuum Distortions

Involves strains within the connective tissue matrix, often manifesting in sprained ankles, pulled muscles, and other common injuries.
