The Pelvis, Legs, and Feet
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     The pelvis is the basin-shaped structure that forms our hips. The sacrum connects the pelvis to the spine. The ilium, ischium, and pubis are the other bones that make up the pelvis. Your pelvis supports the bottom of the spine.
 
2     The leg bone is attached to the pelvis in a ball-and-socket joint. The pelvic girdle is held in place by strong ligaments. This provides great strength and stability. The pelvis protects the bladder and large intestine in men and women. It also protects the uterus in women.
 
3     At the back of the pelvis is your gluteus maximus, which is Greek for "biggest rump." These muscles are the largest muscles in the body. They help support your upper body and allow you to turn your hips.
