    What is the fascial distortion model? I googled it and there is not much on it practically. Do you have to be a member of a secret club to get the secrets?

    Here is the word salad:
    The fascial distortion model is an anatomical perspective in which the underlying etiology of virtually every musculoskeletal injury (and many neurological and medical conditions as well) is considered to be comprised of one or more of six specific pathological alterations of the body’s connecting tissues (fascial bands, ligaments, tendons, retinacula, etc.). This model not only allows for strikingly effective manipulative treatments for diverse afflictions such as pulled muscles, fractures, and frozen shoulders, but the results are objective, obvious, measurable, and immediate.
    That is from the now deleted Wikipedia entry on the fascial distortion model..... that says a lot.

    and this:
    " Based on the absence of proof of concept for FDM treatment techniques along with certain theoretical considerations, seven problems emerge, the most striking of which 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."
