What organs are protected, at least in part, by the pelvic girdle?
Uterus, urinary bladder, rectum, small intestine, reproductive organs
Distinguish between the true pelvis and the false pelvise
True pelvis - Small bowl-like shape containing the urinary bladder and sexual organs
False pelvis - Area between alla (wings of pelvis) - contains some abdominal organs
Difference between male and female pelvis
Female pelvis: further apart than males, scrum is wider, shorter, and less curved than males, pelvic inlet is wider, oval from side-to-side

Can be more prone to knee related injuries due to high intensity knee landing or impact since the knee is already in a weak position
