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 more

Would sacral iliac and ala injections cure coccyx pain?

Depends: Sacro-iliac injections would only be expected to cure symptoms coming from that specific joint. It would be fairly uncommon for sacro-iliac problems to cause pain in the tailbone (coccyx). There is a condition known as Coccydynia. In that case the coccyx is tender and patients have pain sitting down. A steroid injection in the coccyx is the main injection we try for that. ...Read more

What can I do about coccyx pain?

Conservative/aggress: First, you need a diagnosis: what's causing the pain? Treatment depends on cause as well as other factors. Commonly, it's due to injury. If it's fractured, surgery is an option, though osteopathic docs use more conservative manipulation techniques to re-position the coccyx. Sometimes there is no visible cause for pain. A good osteopathic exam and manual treatment might prove helpful in such a case. ...Read more
