F.E.D. Method: Assessment, Treatment and Monitoring of Spinal Misalignments


F.E.D. Method – a therapeutic procedure, through which we can assess, treat effectively and monitor the misalignment of the spine (scoliosis, hyperkyphosis, hyperlordosis…).

Treatment using the F.E.D. System, continuously, with three-dimensional fixation of the spine, in elongation and with the application of a progressive external force, from 1 to 100 kilos, intermittent or not, 30 seconds of pressure and 10 seconds of relaxation, on the apex of the pathological arch, during the period of growth of the person, structurally modifies the tissues, correcting vertebro-costal, cartilage, muscle, vascularization, proprioception and orthostatic awareness, normalizing or always improving postural control and causing painful symptoms to subside.

The F.E.D. is a Dynamic and Three-Dimensional Treatment of Scoliosis

The F.E.D. has been designed for the treatment of spinal deviations by means of the three-dimensional Fixation of the spine in Elongation, with corrective and Desrotatory pressure, programmable in intensity, intermittent or continuous and with postural control of the patient during the relaxation intervals.

The forces generated by the normal activity of the scoliotic patient put pressure on the hemibtebrae, hemidiscs and cartilages, subjecting them to unequal compressive forces, thus preventing their normal development.

Dynamic and asymmetrical are able to originate and aggravate a bone deformation in the period of bone growth. Thus, a higher asymmetric force applied in the opposite direction counteracts the primary deforming effects and normalizes the situation.

The F.E.D. Method:

  • Decompress the intervertebral pressure on the concave side as well as the inhibited neurocentral and epiphyseal cartilages.
  • Modify the pathological orientation of the fibers of the fibrous ring of the intervertebral disc.
  • Correct the deformations of the intervertebral joints (capsules, ligaments and muscles) on the concave side.
  • Expand intervertebral and intercostal mobility and improve respiratory capacity.
  • Stimulate proprioceptive systems on the concave side.

Who are these courses for?

  • Doctors;
  • Physiotherapists;
  • Occupational therapists.

The courses will be held in English, with translation into Lithuanian.

Program of Courses

Module I
Theme: Introduction: Spine Evolution. Biomechanical Difference between the Quadruped and bipedal stance. Difficulties in the ethiopathogenical approach of the deviations. Controversy of the physiotherapy treatment. Anatomy and physiology of the vertebral spine. Biomechanics of the spine. Kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis: ethiology, classification and anatomo- pathology.
Objective: Introduce the professional to the recent situation where the different areas of investigation, the procedures of diagnosis and treatment of the spine deformations are found. Enlarge the Anatomo- pathology that facilitates the interpretation of the biomechanical affects that produce onto the vertebra or the extra vertebral elements the deforming forces of the kyfosis, lordosis and scoliosis.

Module II
Theme: Evaluation and follow up. Generalities, Material, Clinical History. Physical and Functional exploration. Balance of the Shoulders and the Pelvis. Spirometry.
Objective: Train the professional in using the material, techniques, methods of assessment, assessment of the spine and follow up with precise and reliable data.

Module III
Theme: Scientific Basis. Introduction. Material. Methods. Results. Discussion.
Objective: Teach the scientific basis the FED Method.

Module IV
Theme: Scientific Basis. Therapy’s stages; Elongation, Fixation, Derotation and Inversion of the curve. (Dynamic performance of the spine). Electrotherapy and thermotherapy. analytical kinesiotherapy: Auto-control and relaxation. Others kinesiotherapy Methods.
Objective: Deepen the knowledge of the biomechanical analysis of the dynamic performance of the spine under the effect of the correctives forces and the study of the therapeutic unfastens effects. Instruct the professional of the complete knowledge, the experience and the adequate practically use and handle of the FED Unit.
Instruct the professional using the electrotherapy, thermotherapy and vertebral traction as preparing phase for the treatment of the patient into the FED Unit. Training of the professional to install appropriates analytic kinesiotherapy steps for each deformation, which secure and stabilize the therapeutic results of the dynamic corrective forces generated of the FED Unit.
