i have recurrent coccydynia due to pelvic floor dysfunction. other than physical therapy what can i do about it and a physician of which speciality can help?

Coccydynia: Fracture of the coccyx after a difficult delivery may not result in repair of the fracture, so the separated portions of the coccyx are free to irritate sensitive nerve endings with movement, etc.. A colorectal surgeon may be a good resource for treatment.
