Psoas and iliacus m uscles

ACTION: flexes the hip, increases lordosis
REFERRAL: anterior thigh and lower back

COMMENTS: The psoas and iliacus muscle also refer to the lower back area. This muscle is primarily responsible for anterior rotation of the pelvis, which increases the lordosis of the lumbar spine. When working around the psoas, be cautious of the inguinal ligament. On the inferior attachment, be careful of the femoral artery.
