Pelvis. Computer artwork of the pelvis showing the ligaments (white), nerves (yellow) and muscles (pink). Ligaments are bands of connective tissue that connect bones. The nerves originating from the sacrum (bone directly beneath spine) innervate the legs. The coccygeus muscle is shown. This muscle forms part of the pelvic floor, which provides support to the pelvic organs and helps to maintain continence of the anal and urinary sphincters.
