Iliacus Muscle

The iliacus muscle works with the psoas major as a powerful flexor of the thigh at the hip joint. It joins the psoas in a number of other actions as the iliopsoas. The iliopsoas muscle is frequently regarded as a single muscle, because it is a blending of two muscles, the psoas major and the iliacus.
