Treatment for Coccydynia (Tailbone Pain)
The bony end of the spine is called the coccyx, or tailbone. When this area is injured or inflamed, it can cause a painful condition called coccydynia. If you experience tailbone pain when sitting, you may have coccydynia. Our pain and spine specialists at Caliber Pain™ in New York City offer treatment for coccydynia, or tailbone pain.
The coccyx, or tailbone, can be bruised, fractured or inflamed from trauma, abnormal movement or infection. Coccydynia, or tailbone pain, can be caused by a variety of conditions or injuries. Symptoms include tailbone pain when sitting that is relieved by standing or walking, with intense pain when moving from the sitting to standing position. Pain may also be experienced during bowel movements or sexual intercourse. Causes can include:
- Trauma during childbirth
- Falling or impacting the tailbone
- Infections near the tailbone
- Abnormal pressure or movement of the tailbone
- Tumors or fractures
Coccydynia can be a frustrating condition that makes it painful to sit, drive or perform normal daily activities.
