Pelvic Girdle Composed of three bones: 1. Ilium (Superior) 2. Ischium (Posterior) 3. Pubis (Anterior)  Sacrum and ilium articulation do not move and cause shearing because of bumps along the articulation Differences between genders  Female pelvic girdle is wider, ilium has great lateral flare  Female acetabulum projects more laterally than male (greater anterior projection)  Female sacrum is wider and shorter  Female femur has greater lateral to medial angle so it descends to the tibia  Mechanics of muscle action is different in females o Wider and unable to produce as much force Femur  Longest, strongest bone in the body  Trochanters: two large protrusions at the superior head which are attached to the large gluteal muscles  Widens as it approaches inferior end and connects to tibia o Stronger resistance to force  Popliteal fossa (sexy French voice) from posterior view o Muscle attached is responsible for initial movement of knee flexion  Very strong ligaments from pubic girdle to the femur Tibia  Second longest bone
