I have a broken coccxis (since i was a child, i m 39 now..) and little back pain and i will be doing skydiving (indoor) at the week end. is that safe?

I have a broken coccxis (since i was a child, i m 39 now..) and little back pain and i will be doing skydiving (indoor) at the week end. is that safe?

Not unsafe: Coccygeal Trauma as a child should've healed long ago.The fact that you continue to have chronic pain is unfortunate but does occur in a small % of people who've had an injury to the coccyx. There is a risk for reinjury in the extreme sport of skydiving but standard precautions prevailing you should be fine. You could add a little extra padding to the tailbone for good measure. ...Read more

Is it safe to do indoor skydiving if i have a mild back pain? (due to a broken coccxis, broken as a child..)

Is it safe to do indoor skydiving if i have a mild back pain? (due to a broken coccxis, broken as a child..)

Back pain: Mild back pain should not limit your sports. Make sure that you do back exercises and stretches beforehand and ice the back afterward. If the activity does make the pain worse then either modify your approach or don't participate in that sport. The tailbone pain is likely related to degenerated lumbar discs and not a previously fractured coccyx. ...Read more

Believe it or not...: Movement. without weight bearing. And improving your flexibility. An exercise program that includes yoga and or swimming may be the best answer without going to "Medications". I don't know your current weight, but even a ten pound weight loss can decrease the stress on a hip joint significantly especially if there is any arthritic changes in the joint. - KB ...Read more

Would having an epidural during child birth 19 mos ago cause mid to lower back pain while laying down?

Would having an epidural during child birth 19 mos ago cause mid to lower back pain while laying down?

Back pain after epid: It is not likely your pain is from the labor epidural after 19 months. What is more likely is a back injury resulting from the actual vaginal delivery and associated efforts. This can be caused by a strain or herniation. Also, you should not overlook the possibility of an unrelated medical problem. If the pain is not dissipating and does not respond to over the counter medications, see a doctor. ...Read more
