Do you ever get asked, “How long will he be out?”
Looking to enhance the quality of care for your athletes?
There may be a solution…
Decreasing time lost in competition is one of the most challenging aspects the Athletic Trainer faces on a weekly, if not daily, basis.
The intuition that is an unspoken quality of most ATC’s may come from clinical experience, knowledge of recent evidence based research, or an uncanny understanding of the physically demanding requirements athletes are held to.
So, what if you could take your natural qualities and combine them with something that would potentially enhance the quality of care for your athletes and decrease time lost?
The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is a treatment model in which virtually all soft tissue injuries, or musculoskeletal complaints, are viewed through one or more of the six different types of alterations to the body’s connective tissues.
FDM contains a detailed physical assessment leading to a specific diagnosis and provides substantial objective outcomes.
The patient’s verbal and physical descriptions, coupled with the mechanism of injury and relevant orthopedic tests, will lead the clinician to the proper form of soft tissue treatment.
Athletes have to improve each season…so do ATC’s!!
Stay ahead of the game! The Fascial Distortion Model is proud to announce that we are approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Athletic Trainers. This program is eligible for a maximum of 17 Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spent in the educational program.
