    How to use "Pelvis" in context?

    Sitting on the bottom of the spine, the pelvis is a very important part of human anatomy. It helps to support the spine, move the legs, and manage childbirth. The pelvis also has a lot of squishy soft tissue, which can easily be compressed or bruised.

    There are three bones that make up the pelvis: the ilium, the ischium, and the pubis. The ilium lies below the umbilicus (the navel), and the two ischium bones are attached to the ilium. The pubis is a little bit higher and attached to the front of the ischium.
