Solutions

Verified

The pelvis is the lower part of the trunk of the human body, between the abdomen and the thighs. Bones which form the pelvis are two hip bones (right and left), sacrum and coccyx. The hip bone is a large bone articulated behind with the sacrum, and in front with its fellow of the opposite side, formed by three parts: ilium, ischium, and pubis (the ilium at the rear, the ischium at the lower front and the pubis above it). The sacrum is located at the inferior end of the spine (below L5 and in between hip bones). The coccyx is located at the bottom spine, right above buttocks.
