The pelvis is a bony ring between the hips. It is made up of the
sacrum in the back (posterior), the two hip bones (ilium and ischium) on the
sides, and the pubis in the front. The pelvis connects to the spine at the
sacrum and to the bones of the legs at the hip joints. The tailbone (coccyx)
attaches to the lower tip of the sacrum.
