You start with the online FDM Principles Course, included with every seminar. This introduces you to fascia and how The Fascial Distortion Model works. We require that you finish this course prior to attending the hands-on seminar.
This seminar contains a review of the FDM Principles as well as a basic introduction to the Practice of the Fascial Distortion Model in relation to the Upper Region of the human body. Here we will fine-tune your knowledge of the basic principles and expose you to the power of correctly identifying and treating Upper Region complaints as they relate to the FDM. Special attention will be emphasized on teaching you how to properly administer the basic manual treatment portion of our Model. You will have the opportunity to feel what it is like to be treated within the FDM and practice the manual portions in detail with our instructors.
Our teaching approach is very interactive and hands-on. Evaluations throughout the seminar on many different aspects of the FDM Principles and Practice will be administered by our team. This not only assists in quality control, but will also ensure that you have instant feedback to questions you may have as the seminar progresses.
The list of injuries that you will learn to treat is extensive. But don’t worry…there are no protocols to learn here! Within the FDM, our Model is unlike the traditional assessment-protocol- treatment-rehab regurgitation we typically learn in school, or with other ‘techniques’. We will teach you not only what to treat, but how to treat it, and why…regardless of the diagnostic label.
Having said that, upon completing the Upper Region seminar you will have a better understanding of the FDM approach and will be able to confidently apply our Model to common Upper Region injuries typically found in office. Examples of injuries you will learn to treat include: “Mid Back Sprains/Strains, Neck Pain, Whiplash, Headaches, Wrist Sprains/Strains, Carpal Tunnel, Forearm Sprains/Strains, Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, Bicep Tendonitis, Triceps Tendonitis, Shoulder Pain, Rotator Cuff Injuries, Impingement Syndrome and Frozen Shoulder.”
Once you have completed this seminar you will immediately possess the general knowledge and skill to correctly identify and treat Upper Region complaints in your office. Your new understanding of what to treat will have an entirely new confidence behind it! As you practice within this Model, your assessment and palpation skills will naturally improve because your identification of why you’re treating a particular area will be directly correlated to how. Your added security will be in the state-of-art online training manual we provide for you as well as access to our Instructors and communication portals.
