Sorry am unable --: To understand the question clearly.
There is no such thing, that i know, called sitz bone. The bones we sit on are the ischiums.
Sitz baths are used for hemorrhoids or after surgery for them.
You might rephrase the question, if i haven't answered it to your satisfaction.
Looking forward to hear from you.
