How to Injure Your Pelvis

The pelvis is a complex muscle and tissue structure that lies beneath the pubic bone and the coccyx, or sitting bone. The muscles that line the pelvic floor are normally thick and firm. There are several ways to hurt or injure your pelvic floor. Here are some common ways to injure your pelvic floor. You should also watch out for common pelvic floor disorders. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should seek medical help immediately.

Anatomical structure

The pelvis, also known as the bony pelvis, is a basin-shaped complex of bones that connects the trunk and legs. It houses the urinary bladder, intestines, and internal sex organs. The pelvic bones include the pubis, ischium, ilium, and coccyx. The bones and ligaments that connect the pelvic bones and the pubis form the pelvic girdle.

In the present study, we used a semi-pelvis model for visualization. The transparent area was reduced. In this model, the axial view of the pelvis is perpendicular to the arcuate line. The green dotted line indicated the region surrounding the acetabulum, the area commonly used for ilioinguinal screw placement. The shortest vertical line is the “most-dangerous” screw insertion point.

Functions

The pelvis is composed of bones and ligaments that connect the lower extremities to the spine and pelvic floor. The pelvis is an important structural component for standing and walking, and it serves as the anchor for some muscles and other structures. The pelvis is a major source of blood and nerve supply for the body, so blood vessels and nerves need to move through narrow passages to reach the lower extremities. Also, the pelvis is a major component of the gait cycle, with every leg movement involving the pelvis.

The anatomy of the pelvis is a complex system with several functions. These include stabilizing the lower abdomen and pelvic floor, stimulating bony growth, and preparing for upright walking. Humans were born at different stages, including the early stages of life. Human neonates, however, should be born at an earlier stage, because preterm babies are too big for the birth canal. However, Dunsworth et al. (2012) showed that a wider pelvic floor did not increase energy expenditure.

Fractures

If you have experienced a pelvic fracture, you know how painful it can be. Pelvic fractures often cause pain in the groin, hip, and lower back. You may also experience numbness, tingling, or difficulty walking or standing. Treatment depends on the type of fracture and the surrounding soft tissues. Some patients will require physical therapy or surgery, depending on the severity of the fracture and its impact on daily activities.

A patient with a history of traumatic pelvic injury is examined for a diffuse decrease in bone density on pelvic radiographs. Imaging of the pelvic region reveals an indistinct trabecular pattern with erased cortical margins. Other findings include a diffuse decrease in bone density and a diffuse ground-glass appearance. The radiograph of a woman with a history of primary hyperparathyroidism shows a decreased height of the L5 vertebra, an altered SI joint, and a distal iliac ramus.

Disorders

Veinous disorders of the pelvis encompass the pelvic venous system, and include four anatomic zones: the gonadal vein, internal iliac vein, left renal vein, and femoral artery. These venous disorders usually affect the pelvis and lower extremities, but can occur in other areas. Pelvic venous disorders can also affect the lower extremities, causing varicosities in those areas.

This condition is often accompanied by left flank pain and microscopic hematuria. A pelvic venogram reveals the presence of associated pelvic varicosities. It is classified according to Symptoms-Varices-Pathophysiology (SVP) criteria. In rare cases, a diagnosis can be made without a pelvic ultrasound. However, patients with pelvic venography should be referred to a urologist if they experience left flank pain or a significant amount of hematuria.

Pathologies

Pathologies of the pelvis are a complex structure within the human body. Pelvic symptoms often cross specialties, requiring the participation of several specialists. Pelvic pathologies can affect women and men alike. For example, inflammatory diseases of the pelvic cavity are common among women, and they can lead to pregnancy problems. A tubo-ovarian abscess can also result from pelvic inflammatory disease, making you very sick. STIs, chlamydia, and gonorrhea are among the causes.

Inflammatory diseases of the pelvis are caused by bacterial infection of the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus. These infections are typically sexually transmitted and can affect any of these reproductive organs. Pelvic inflammatory disease may result in pain and scarring, as well as infertility. A woman can experience symptoms of inflammatory disease of the pelvis, including infertility and ectopic pregnancy.
