For the most part yes. The only part of the axial skeleton it is in contact with is the sacrum and coccyx. But is it also attached to the iliac crest which is appendicular and its main action is extension and lateral rotation of the thigh.

PCH Answer: The Buttocks Gluteus maximus is the largest and most superficial muscle in the buttock. It is attached to the Ilium bone( part of the pelvis), the Sacrum, the side of the Coccyx via the Sacrotuberus ligament and apponueroses ( the Gluteal apponeurosis and the Erector spinae). The muscle fibres pass down at an angle and attach to the Iliotibial tract of the Fascia Lata, the deep fibres of the muscle attach to the Gluteal tuberosity of the Femur.

Ligaments help you move by providing elasticity from your joints to your muscles. With broken ligaments, one would not be able to move the injured body part.

The muscles contract, while others move foreward, which allows the body part to move.

Gluteal means in the buttocks.There are three muscles that more or less make up the part of the body that we call the buttocks; gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus, hence gluteal.IM means Intra Muscular.So gluteal IM injection is given in the muscles of the buttocks.The reason why an injection is given in the buttocks usually is that whatever the drug it has to slowly diffund into the bloodstream as opposed to IV (intraveneously) that is administered directly into the bloodstream. e.g. some psychoactive drugs needs to be administered this way to have a long lasting effect, so it is not necesarry to take the medicin quite as often.
