Therapy Process & Costs

1. FDM diagnosis

The interpretation of the body language and gestures of the patient plays a central role in the diagnosis. Due to special interpretation skills, the intuitive gestures of patients can be decoded and thus provide direct clues as to which fascial distortion is present. A comprehensive case history and examination complement the FDM findings and also x-ray images, blood tests etc. are taken into consideration.

2. FDM treatment with the Typaldos method

After exclusion of possible contraindications and clear definition of the aim of the therapy, the fascial distortions are corrected with specific targeted maneuvers.

  • Sometimes this requires strong pressure on specific spots or pathways.
  • Other distortions are manipulated with traction or compression in the region of joints.
  • Also broad/laminar treatment of the most superficial fasciae can ease certain complaints.
3. Checking the treatment result

The treatment has an immediate effect thus the patients can immediately evaluate the result. If the intervention is successful, the treatment will be continued. If the intervention shows no effect, the technique will be adapted or altered or the patient will be reassessed.

4. Treatment costs

The treatment costs vary. In general they are refunded by private health insurance funds and private complementary health insurances. To date the statutory health insurances do not cover the costs or at least not the whole costs.
Please talk to your FDM physician or practitioner about possibilities of reimbursement.
