Coccydynia

Coccydynia

Coccydynia is a term describing pain in and around the coccyx or tailbone area, often caused by a trauma to the coccyx area or by childbirth. After such trauma, the coccyx can become restricted in a misaligned position and the coccygeus muscles can become tight, tense and hypertonic aggravating one’s pelvic pain. Often, sitting can be extremely painful for those who suffer from Coccydynia. Physical therapy will address any and all musculoskeletal issues with manual therapy and education on self-treatment as well.
