Coccydynia: Coccydynia literally means pain coming from the tailbone and its cause is not known.

Hx of broken tailbone 7 yrs ago, recently experiencing axial coccyx pain, especially after exercise. Got an X-ray and it was normal. What to do?
Coccydynia: Tailbone pain can occur with or without injury. Only real concern is to exclude a sacral tumor (extremely rare). If bowel/bladder habits normal, probably ok. Treatment included nsaid's, and a sitting pillow. Not a doughnut, but a foam wedge with triangle cutout. This keeps you sitting leaning forward without pressure on the coccyx. If persistent, removal is rarely needed but successful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A good osteopathic exam and manual treatment might prove helpful in such a case. ...Read more
Coccydynia.: This sounds like coccydynia, which is a pain in the tail bone which occurs after sitting on a hard surface for a long time or from falling onto your tail bone onto a hard surface.

Usually injury: Although there may be other potential causes for coccygeal pain, the most common cause is injury, even if you don't remember a specific injury. As an osteopathic doc who does a lot of pain treatment & manipulation, the vast majority of coccydinia is due to minor & major coccyx injuries. Even sitting wrong can injure it - fracture it or simply displace it. Manipulation &/or prolotherapy often help. ...Read more
