Program Purpose / Objectives
Fascial Distortion Model at Sea – Beyond the Modules

Purpose ‐ The purpose of this course is to help practitioners of FDM expand their thinking and tools beyond what they learn in any of the introductory modules 1-3. "Being in the model" means looking at all medical conditions through the lens of FDM and asking questions that challenge our traditional thinking. We will look at several common conditions in the model and introduce new techniques to address these issues. We will also introduce new concepts. Tools are not a typical part of FDM but during this course we will see how one tool may provide some additional treatment options.

Objectives:
  1. Encourage to think in the model while addressing conditions that were not introduced in Module 1-3.
  2. Discuss and treat the foot pads with the FDM to improve outcomes for our patients with foot pain.
  3. Look beyond simple plantar fasciitis when treating foot pain.
  4. Show how treating a dermatologic condition in the model can improve a patient’s functional status.
  5. Discuss and treat visceral distortions. Take the concepts of the model into the fascia of the visceral organs.
  6. Use FDM to discuss pelvic floor conditions.
  7. Use FDM for more complicated knee injuries.
  8. Discuss and treat triggerbands that go through the body

Faculty
Todd Capistrant, DO , originally hails from Minnesota. He is a graduate of Des Moines University and U of MN Bethesda Family Practice Residency. After residency he joined a busy practice in western Wisconsin. He moved his family to Alaska to pursue his passion for dog sled racing and the beauty of Alaska. He and his family have competed in and completed the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race and they still have a team of sled dogs. His daughters have taken over the role of racing the dogs. Now that Dr. Capistrant is spending less time racing dogs he has embraced teaching and spreading the Fascia Distortion Model (FDM). He works as a member of department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Tanana Valley Clinic/ Banner Health in Fairbanks, Alaska. His practice has grown rapidly over the past years in large part due to the power of incorporating the FDM in to his Osteopathic practice. He feels the FDM provides a valuable perspective through which all of Osteopathic Medicine can be explained. He is particularly excited about the freshness that the FDM brings to his practice of medicine, enabling him to treat injuries that had previously not been possible. In the spring of 2011 he was honored with the Rising Star award by the Northwest Osteopathic Medical Foundation. Dr. Capistrant is a certified FDM instructor and is very interested in teaching the FDM to change the way musculoskeletal injuries are treated in modern medicine. He is President of the American Fascia Distortion Model Association Board.

Matt Booth, PT, DPT, grew up in Oregon and moved to Idaho after physical therapy school. He is a graduate of the charter class of the University of Southern California's Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. Dr. Booth is the director of Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy‐SE Boise. He was introduced to Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) in 2010, which radically changed his practice. His practice grew in large part due to the addition of FDM and outgrew the previous location in 2015.

Dr. Booth has presented on FDM for ACL tears at the 6th FDM World Congress in 2014 at San Antonio, Texas, and the International Fascia Research Congress in Washington D.C. in 2015. In 2016, he was the first physical therapist in the U.S. to receive the FDM International Certificate.

His work with FDM outside the clinic includes covering semi-pro football teams, where he has seen FDM treatment show some of the fastest results with joint sprains. He is passionate about spreading FDM to physical therapists and other medical practitioners, and works with the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho to teach FDM to the Resident physicians and Faculty. Dr. Booth has been named Physical Therapist of the Year by the Idaho PT Association. In his spare time, Dr. Booth enjoys the training process for Ironman Triathlons and enjoying the Idaho outdoors with his family.

Ports of Call
Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.
Falmouth, Jamaica - Step off the ship and step back in time. You might not think so at first glance but little Falmouth was an economic and shipping powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. Founded and named Martha Brae Point in 1769 by local English planter, Thomas Reid, Falmouth became the transshipment hub for the sugar plantations covering the hills of the North Coast of Jamaica. Edward Barrett, a wealthy English planter, strongly influenced the early development of Falmouth. From the wharfs of Falmouth, sugar, molasses, rum and coffee were sent to England while ships carrying African slaves and all the necessities of 18th century colonial life dropped anchor in the bustling port town. You'll return with sun kissed skin, timeless memories as well as interesting historical tidbits to share with friends, like this one: Falmouth received piped water before New York City.
Galveston, TX - Galveston is famous for its seafood, tropical scenery and breathtaking Victorian architecture. This magnificent island also boasts of 32 miles of beautiful beaches and great sportfishing.
George Town, Grand Cayman - The premier attraction here is Seven Mile Beach...white as snow, soft as talc. Name your game and you'll find it here: Snorkeling, swimming, sailing, windsurfing over rippling waves, or gliding under them in a passenger submarine. Or perhaps shopping is your game. Duty-free bargains abound: crystal, perfume, jewelry fashioned of silver and prized pink coral.
