Dr Capistrant is a graduate of Des Moines University where he earned both his DO and MHA degrees. He has been active in the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) since 2006 when he first experienced at first hand this approach to treatment. He has served many roles on the board of the American Fascial Distortion Model Association (AFDMA) and is completing a two-term period as the organization’s President. Dr Capistrant became an instructor of the FDM in 2010 and since then has conducted courses throughout the United States and internationally. He is a member of the Fascial Distortion Model Global Organization (FDMGO) and was one of the original signatories to the charter documents that created that organization. Dr Capistrant authored an introductory book called “Why Does it Hurt?” that introduces FDM to anyone interested in learning the basics about this modality. In 2021 he was awarded a diploma in sports medicine from the International Olympic Committee.
Dr Capistrant currently practices full-time Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine in Fairbanks, Alaska with Foundation Health Partners Tanana Valley Clinic. He was the founding member of a vibrant OMM department that has grown to six members and now includes a hospital practice. He credits the success of this department to the universal implementation of FDM by all the practitioners in the group.
