New ABMP Webinar: "A Detailed Approach to Low-Back Pain" with Allison Denney

Join Allison Denney of Rebel Massage for a dynamic webinar that takes an in-depth look at the muscles, structures, and common dysfunctions of the lumbar region while putting the “fun” in functional anatomy. Detailed muscles painted on a client show the relationship between where the muscles are, what they do, and how they most often create a pain response. Explore examples of how each of the three common low-back issues—overuse injuries, muscles strains, and trigger points—occurs and learn practical treatment approaches you can use with your clients today. Watch it now here.

ABMP members who have watched this course said:

"Very creative visual style with the painting of muscles on the model. As a visual learner, this was really great. Hope I see more of Allison Denney!"

"I really liked the breaks for definitions to ensure we understood what the instructor was talking about. Painting the muscles on a body was so creative and was a great visual concept of how movements affect the low-back muscles."

The ABMP Education Center, home to more than 200 on-demand continuing education courses for massage therapists and bodyworkers, is available at www.abmp.com/ce, and the new webinar is available here.

ABMP members can earn free NCBTMB-approved CE by watching the webinar and passing a quiz.
