Tailbone Pain

Tailbone pain is also known as coccygodenia.  The tailbone is composed of 2 to 4 tiny vertebrae at the very bottom of the pelvis that are attached to each other and surrounding structures by muscles, tendons and ligaments.

The coccyx can be hurt in a backward fall, hard sitting, childbirth and a variety of other situations. Given the amount of winter we see in Watertown, it's not unusual for us to see a few cases a year at Deutsch Chiropractic.

Tailbone pain can be relatively severe and persistent, and it's not unusual that the sufferer cannot sit down comfortably without a “doughnut” or “butt doughnut”.

Tailbone pain causes and treatment

Tailbone Pain Treatment

Treatment depends on a number of factors including stability and direction of tailbone injury. In general, therapies are used to reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing.

Dr. Fred and Dr. Kathleen understand tailbone pain. If you've injured your tailbone, the doctors have experience working with patients like you to relieve the pain.
