A Fundamental Critique of the Fascial Distortion Model and its Application in Clinical Practice

The therapeutic techniques used in the fascial distortion model (FDM) and other fascial release techniques have become increasingly popular among physiotherapists. Based on the absence of proof of concept for FDM treatment techniques along with certain theoretical considerations, seven problems emerge and are discussed in this on-line course. The most striking of these include: (1) diagnostic criteria for FDM, (2) the biological implausibility of the model, (3) the reduction of all such disorders to a single common denominator: the fasciae, (4) the role of FDM research, and (5) potentially harmful consequences related to FDM treatment.
