Module 1 provides an extensive Introduction to the Fascial Distortion Model, including the theory and concepts that are basic to diagnosis and treatment within the FDM. The theory of FDM is defined and explained along with the likely outcomes with and without treatment. Extensive hands-on time is an integral part of this course. Diagnosis and treatment of shoulder, knee and ankle injuries are highlighted in this course with plenty of supervised practicum time so that practitioners will be able to return to their offices with skills they can immediately utilize.

FDM Global Organization (FDMGO)
AFDMA is proud to be a member of the FDM Global Organization (FDMGO). The FDMGO is an international collective of the three international FDM associations that has been formed to help move the FDM forward in an organized and collaborative manner. Members of the FDMGO have reached an agreement that will help coordinate curriculum, set parameters for the spread of FDM, and create standards for those people who are interested in reaching the status of being Internationally Certified in the practice of FDM.
As apart of the AFDMA, members agree to support the core beliefs of the FDGO that no treatment videos will be displayed open source on the internet. Before and after treatment demonstrations are okay, but no complete treatments will be made available online in an open source format.
