In brief: Coccygodynia

Various etiologies have been described for coccygodynia.
The most common are falls resulting in direct injury to the sacrococcygeal synchondrosis. These can occur either from a kick, an injury on a trampoline when one hits the bar or springs that surround the trampoline jumping pad, or falling from a horse or skis. Try nsaids and heat.
