Pelvic Girdle


Lmb.PGr
Pelvic girdle, also known as the bony pelvis, is comprised of two hipbones, that connect in the front at the pubic symphysis, and in the back, by the sacrum bones. This bony complex connects the trunk and legs, providing support and balance the body, and encasing and supporting the intestines, urinary bladder, and internal sex organs. The ring formed by the pelvic girdle functions as the birth canal.
