Types of Pain and Problems

Pelvic Pain/Coccydynia

Coccydynia is pain in the coccyx or as it is better known tailbone. The two most common causes are falling backwards and childbirth. However, in about one third of the cases the cause of coccydynia is unknown. The most common complaint is pain while sitting down, which is caused by the coccyx dislocating as you sit. In many cases osteopathic manipulation of the area can give relief. Other patients may benefit from an injection of cortisone. In the most severe cases implantation of spinal cord stimulation may provide the greatest relief.
