If you don’t get the titular reference, we have a grave problem for which the only cure is a Pirates of the Caribbean movie marathon.
Monday marked the point where we reached the back end of the dog. These last few months have seen an anatomical journey from nose to tail – which ended with ‘Pelvis’. Not, in fact, tail.
So far, I’d considered the contents of the pelvis to be the same as those in the abdomen, because unlike the boundary between thorax and abdomen, there’s no obvious divide. What this lecture really communicated was how things rounded off, wrapped up and continued to the outside world, and what muscles are involved in holding it all in. This lead to a rather uncomfortable image when our lecturer began telling us about her pelvic floor exercises.
