Coccydynia

Coccydynia


The coccyx is also known as the tailbone that is between the buttocks and the very bottom part of the spine. Pain in this area (Coccydynia) is most often due to inflammation from injury, giving birth, or occurs randomly without any known cause. Symptoms include buttock pain that is worse when sitting and tenderness to the touch. Treatment options include use of a seat cushion when seated, pain medications, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), chiropractic adjustments, stretching, physical therapy, and caudal steroid injections.
