PELVIS Pelvis (or pelvic girdle) The pelvis (meaning "basin") is a ring-shaped structure consisting of four main bones: the sacrum, two hipbones, and the coccyx. , those making up the pelvic floor) and ligaments above. The pelvis receives the weight of the upper body and passes this weight on to the lower limbs via its articulations with the femurs. , in walking or jumping. 43 THE TRUNK The shape of the bones forms a greater (false) pelvis at the top and a lesser (true) pelvis at the bottom. The top opening of the lesser pelvis is called the pelvic inlet.

The opposite occurs closer together, and the associated on the right side. ligaments are relaxed; In rotation, the fibers of the disc, whose orientation alternates from one layer to the next, are under torsion (twisting). They are moving in two different directions from layer to layer, such that one layer is stretched and the next layer is relaxed. Because of the effect of the torsion, and the ensuing tension on the fibers, the distance between the vertebrae is diminished. The nucleus is therefore slightly compressed.

Inferiorly, the sacrospinous and sacrotuberous ligaments connect the sacrum to the ischial spine and ischial tuberosity respectively. These ligaments tend to oppose adduction" of the pelvis. There are also a series of posterior sacroiliac ligaments connecting the ilium to the lateral sacral crest. These tend to oppose "abduction" of the pelvis 54 THE TRUNK Lumbar spine This is the next structure above the sacrum. It is concave at the back. This is the "loin" area between the pelvis and the ribcage.
