Lower body anatomy. Computer artwork showing the bones (cream), muscles (pink), nerves (yellow) and ligaments and tendons (white) of the lower body. The buttock consists of three muscles, the gluteus minimus, medius and maximus. The muscles at the back of the thigh are the hamstring muscles. The large nerve running from the sacrum (triangular bone at base of spine) down the thigh is the sciatic nerve, the widest and longest nerve in the human body.
