In recent years, extensive fascial research has demonstrated the major involvement of these tissues in injury and pain perception. Fascia represent a fibrous membrane composed of connective tissue very rich in collagen, covering a large part of the tissues of the body, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, bones, organs, etc.

We can easily understand the interest of identifying and treating the various lesions that may be present in the fascia. Many approaches and techniques are for fascias. The FDM technique (Fascial Distortion Model) is one of them. In this approach, the clinician uses palpation, history of onset of injury, and body language describing the injury to identify the type of lesion present. The FDM technique identifies 6 different types of fascial distortion. They are called "Triggerband", "Continuum distortion", "Cylinder distortion", "Herniated triggerpoint", "Folding distortion" and "Tectonic fixation". Each distortion is approached and treated in a completely different way. The treatments consist mainly of manual soft tissue therapy (fascia) and may also involve pumping and joint adjustments depending on the type of dysfunction identified. The FDM technique shows very interesting results in the presence of sports or occupational injuries and is therefore an excellent complement to the rest of our therapeutic approach.
