Why Does It Hurt presents a whole new viewpoint on the way our bodies work using FDM the Fascial Distortion Model. Fascia is the fibrous connective tissue that permeates our bodies and holds everything together. Distorted fascia is often the cause of pain that may not respond to traditional treatments of physical therapy or anti-inflammatory drugs.

Thanks to FDM patients stooped over from chronic back pain now stand straight and athletes sidelined with sprains quickly return to the game and perform as if nothing happened. Why Does It Hurt explains how in case after case FDM dramatically shortens healing time reduces the need for tests and drugs and restores movement and well-being to patients who had given up hope.

Dr. Todd Capistrant is an osteopathic physician who has increasingly centered his practice on the Fascial Distortion Model. In addition to his busy osteopathic manipulative practice he currently serves as the Chief Medical Officer for Tanana Valley Clinic/Banner Health in Fairbanks Alaska. He is a board member of the AFDMA and routinely engaged as one of its instructors to teach the FDM throughout the world. He also serves as a regional dean for Pacific Northwest University an osteopathic medical school located in Yakima Washington bringing Alaskan osteopathic students back to Fairbanks for training. Todd lives near Denali National Park with his wife and two daughters who maintain a sled dog kennel and farm homestead. Both he and his wife have competed in and finished the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. He and his family enjoy being active outdoors and frequently can be found enjoying outdoor pursuits in Alaska and wherever their travels may take them.
