The iliopsoas is an important muscle in lower body function and dysfunction. It is a hip flexor, but it also affects lower back and pelvic alignment. Deep, and back to front, it is often overlooked when the low back hurts. This course includes anatomy and assessment of the iliopsoas; common problems; balance of the psoas and abdominals; manual release techniques; strengthening the psoas; assisted stretching; and simple self-stretches to know and teach your patients.
