My tailbone hurts when i move a certain way ! i lift my 8 yr old into his wheelchair and carry 6 month old in a car seat ? Could it be from lifting ?

My tailbone hurts when i move a certain way ! i lift my 8 yr old into his wheelchair and carry 6 month old in a car seat ? Could it be from lifting ?

Yes: You have a 6 month old baby, which can be a lot of lifting, clumsy postures with the car seat, and loss of sleep. You also have a child who is older and heavier, who needs lifting. It must be difficult to find the time to care for your back (walk, stretch and strengthen) if your babies were born by cesarean section, you may need a corset to protect your back. Seek physical therapy for you! ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: A doctor at the E.R. Can evaluate to see if there is a neck injury, which can be quite dangerous (a risk of spinal cord injury). In general, possible spine injury victims should be transported by ambulance on a backboard, wearing a special neck collar. Afterwards, if only a minor sprain or strain, the physiatrist or orthopedic doctor can examine and refer one to physical therapy for help. ...Read more
