Part II: the Hip and Pelvis

The pelvis is made up of
2 innominate bones which meet:
anteriorly at the pubic symphysis
posteriorly at the sacrum
The innominate bone is made up of 3 fused bones:
Important landmarks to note are:
Anterior-superior iliac spine (ASIS)
Posterior-superior iliac spine (PSIS)
Ischialtubersosity(also called the I.T.s, the ischial “tubes”, or your “sit bones”
When we talk about the hip we are referring to the articulation between the acetabulum of the pelvis and the head of the femur.
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint.
The femur is the longest and strongest bone in the body.
The shape of the proximal portion of the femur changes dramatically from infancy to adulthood.
