Sacral Dimple Treatment
Sacrum pain: The best thing to do is plenty of walking with good posture, avoid lifting, and do flexibility exercises. Sometimes massage and heat can help too. Take an occasional anti-inflammatory and that can help too. In general, using your core muscles while doing pretty much anything can avoid stresses to go to the lumbar spine and sacral junction and that avoids further injury.... Good luck! ...Read more

My sacrum is at an 80 degree angle with a long coccyx that rounds into the bowel. What treatment do you suggest,? Does the coccyx grow when it fuses
Seek evaluation.: Neurologic problems of the bladder and bowel can be quite complex, and show up as a very wide range of symptoms and problems. I'd seek the evaluation of a urologist that sub-specializes in "neurourology". A full history, physical exam, and other testing will help determine what treatments (of which there are many), can improve your situation. Take care and good luck. ...Read more
I hav slipped disc problem in L5 & sacrum. What treatment shud I take? Also is swimming good for me. My age is 26.
Conservative Rx 1st:
Unless there is evidence of bowel or bladder incontinence, and groin numbness, you should start with non-surgical treatments, such as medications, physical therapy (swimming is fine), steroid injections. Surgery is considered only after failure to respond to the above treatments, and you have severe pain, weakness or numbness.
Check with a surgeon to see if you need more aggressive treatment. ...Read more

I had a sarcal fracture in 2015, and recently figured out its a distal sacral fracture w/ nerve caught between breaks. What are treatment options if I?
Time: Treatment for coccygeal fractures is conservative and time will heal the bone. Symptomatic treatment is necessary. You'll need to get a "donut" balloon to sit on to take weight off of the fracture. If it goes on to not heal, sometimes we do an operative excision of the fragment. ...Read more
Can multiple tarlov cysts cause pain and tachycardia? Have them on sacrum, lumbar and mid thoracic area. Treatment?
Probably not: In general, postsacral dimples are found in babies and are related to a coccyx that is retroverted. I believe you probably have a pilonidal sinus. This can drain, get infected and lead to further issues that need to be addressed. I would recommend that it be evaluated. ...Read more
Rarely associated: Most sacral dimples are not symptomatic and do not require evaluation or treatment. Only rarely are sacral dimples associated with a tethered cord. If you have symptoms such as feeling weak or numb in legs, if there are issues with bladder or bowel control, you should have it evaluated - usu including MRI or CT. Size of dimple, hair association, and skin discoloration also offer some hints. ...Read more

See Below: It is a dimple found in the sacrum or buttocks area. The concern is if the dimple is above the gluteal fold. If so, an ultrasound of the spine is normally completed to look for a tethered spinal cord. ...Read more
Pilonidal disease: A lot depends on the depth of the dimple and how hairy the person is when they grow up. A deep sacral dimple may predispose to pilonidal disease which is a painful cyst or mass under the skin covering the tailbone. They tend to get infected and may require surgical removal. ...Read more

2 month old has a sacral dimple, no other symptoms present. So far normal development and normal on exam. Should we still be concerned?
Likely Fine: Most sacral dimples are harmless and don't require any treatment. Rarely sacral dimples are associated with a serious underlying abnormality of the spine or spinal cord. Examples include spina bifida or tethered cord syndrome. The risks of above spinal problems increase if sacral dimple is accompanied by a nearby tuft of hair, skin tag or certain types of skin discolorations. ...Read more
