These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.
FDM-Fascial Distortion Model
Dr. Catherine Haikin is Full-Body certified in a technique whose motto is "Find it. Fix it. FAST!" Great for weekend warriors or elite athletes. This technique is widely used at the professional and collegiate level because it gets results!
FDM stands for the Fascial Distortion Model, developed by Dr. Stephen Typaldos, DO.
It’s called a ‘model’ because it isn’t a technique.
It’s actually a treatment model in which virtually all soft tissue injuries, or musculoskeletal complaints, are viewed through 1 or more of the 6 different types of alterations to the body’s connective tissues.
FDM has no protocols to memorize. Yet, FDM contains a detailed physical assessment, which leads to a specific diagnosis, and provides objective outcomes.
The patient’s verbal and physical descriptions, coupled with the mechanism of injury and relevant orthopedic tests, will lead the practitioner to the proper form of soft tissue treatment.
And for this reason, no other soft tissue approach can reproduce the outcomes repetitively across the board as well as we can!
We teach our patients special "homework" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. We don't take the cookie-cutter approach to your health. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and are unique to you. These exercises can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person and are invested in their health. We help our patients reach true health and wellness.
