Osteopathy: See an osteopath to evaluate your pelvis. Coccydynia is best made with a rectal examination. The pain generator might be your scoiliac joint, or pyriformis syndrome.

Get 2nd Opinion: Is your symptom more a recurrent skin infection or pain symptoms in your tailabone? Coccydinia and pilonidal disease are two completely different processes both in cause as well as presentation. If you are having doubts, you should always consider getting a second opinion.
