Coccydynia is "pain along the tailbone". There are many causes of coccydynia. If the pain does not go away on its own with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, consider seeing your doctor. Imaging such as an xray or MRI can look for tumors, fractures, inflammation, etc.

Can coccyx pain be from recliner chair?

Not Probable

Pain
But possible ... if spending a long time in recliner causing dependent edema in the sacral-coccygeal area. But if manipulating coccyx directly is painful then the recliner as not the cause.

Coccyx pain --- what can be done to fix it?

Injury?

Low_body_weight
Conservative care of injury to the coccyx is Therapy, Manipulation, and injection. Even a severe angle, post fracture, is rarely operated upon. Special pillows and positioning are usually required. This is one instance where low body weight is a problem.

I have severe coccyx pain specially if I set .. it is severe ? Why?

Coccydynia

Pain
coccydynia literally means pain coming from the tailbone and its cause is not known. because the condition responds exceptionally well to an injection of cortisone directly into the coccyx and because cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory, it is felt the condition may be from an inflammation of the coccyx. consider being seen, thank you for your question.

What are some ways to alleviate coccyx pain?

Sits Bath for 15 min

Anesthetic
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

Dr. Mitchell Cohn answered:

What can be the main cause of coccyx pain?

Usually injury

Pain
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.

What can i do about coccyx pain?

Conservative/aggress

Forearm_fracture
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
