The Psoas Muscle and the Pelvic Floor September 2017

A New Look At The Muscles Of The Posterior Abdominal Wall

Course Description:

This course is designed to review the associations of the deepest core mm of the posterior abdominal wall, including the Psoas, quadratus lumborum and the posterior diaphragm. The links between the thoraco-lumbar junction, lumbar spine, SI joint and the hip will be presented in a movement context. The anatomical, neurological and vascular relationship of these structures will be linked to function for human gait, movement, breathing and continence. The emphasis will be placed on a new paradigm for examination and intervention within a functional context.

Through completion of this course, participants will:

  • Identify the anatomical, neurological and vascular connections of the structures of the posterior abdominal wall
  • Describe the normal patterns of movement of the spine, pelvis and hip and the pathoanatomical changes that can occur.
  • Perform examination and interventions to return normal functional movement to these regions


This course is open to all health care professionals – licensed physiotherapists, physiotherapy students, physiotherapy assistants, occupational therapists, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, massage therapists, registered kinesiologists, medical doctors, nurses and midwives.


One-day course from 8am-5pm

Registration begins on the first day 30 minutes prior to the start time.
