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.
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. Can take a long time to heal up. You can try sitting on a "donut", that soft cushion with a hole in the middle that you find at the surgical supply stores. Anti inflammatories and heat may help.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Sits Bath for 15 min: Every day, stool softener, be sure no rectal problems. Nonsurgical management remains the gold standard treatment for coccydynia consisting of decreased sitting seat cushioning coccygeal massage, stretching, manipulation local injection of steroids or anesthetics and postural adjustments. Those patients who fail these conservative modalities may potentially benefit from surgery.
