Since it most likely required a lot of force to cause a fascial distortion, it will require an equally great amount of force to correct the distortion. We have identified six different types of fascial distortions that all contain their own distinct form of correction.
Experiences of discomfort during treatment should be expected, although in most cases the patient is able to acknowledge that the discomfort during treatment 'hurts good' similar to a deep tissue massage.
Treatments can include ironing out fascial seams, smoothing out fascial coils, reversing fascial transition zones on attachment points, minimizing protruding tissue through fascial planes, unfolding and refolding fascial folds, and releasing fixated joints.
The patient's presentation along with the FDM assessment will dictate and identify the type of fascial distortion involved and the proper corrective technique will then be utilized.
