What is Net of Knowledge?

OVERVIEW

The psoas major is a crucial structure to understand as it is involved with the stability and balance of the lumbar spine, pelvis and hip joint. Since it is in such a central location in the body, imbalances in this muscle can impact the entire body, but it is especially important to understand its influence when working with low back, hip and groin pain.

This class will explore the functional anatomy of the psoas major and it will look at its role in spinal and hip mechanics. We will explore how imbalances impact the spine and pelvis and how this muscle can be involved with lordosis, spinal rotations, spinal bends and pelvic tilts. In addition, this class will explore the channel and organ relationships of this muscle to help integrate the anatomy into the channel system. Comprehensive treatment approaches will be explored using local, adjacent and distal acupuncture, myofascial release, and corrective exercises.

DISCLAIMERS

*CEU/CPD ApprovalsSome accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request. If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
