Coccydynia, commonly known as tailbone pain, can be a distressing condition that affects the area at the base of your spine. At Align Health, we understand the impact of coccydynia on your daily life, and our compassionate team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing effective treatment, alleviating tailbone pain, and restoring your comfort.
Coccydynia refers to pain and discomfort in the coccyx, which is the small triangular bone at the very end of the spine. This condition can be caused by various factors, such as trauma from a fall or injury, repetitive strain due to prolonged sitting on hard surfaces, childbirth, or pressure on the coccyx caused by obesity. Coccydynia can result in localized pain or radiate to the lower back and buttocks, making sitting, standing, or moving painful.
At Align Health, we begin the treatment process by conducting a comprehensive evaluation of your coccydynia. Our experienced healthcare providers will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and perform a physical examination to identify the underlying causes of your tailbone pain.
Personalized Treatment Plan:
Based on the evaluation, we will create a tailored treatment plan that may include a combination of the following approaches:
Chiropractic Care: Gentle adjustments can help realign the spine, reduce pressure on the coccyx, and alleviate coccydynia.
Physical Therapy: Customized exercises and stretches will be prescribed to strengthen the muscles around the coccyx, improve flexibility, and enhance joint stability.
Cushion Recommendations: We may suggest special cushions or seating modifications to reduce pressure on the coccyx during sitting.
Heat or Cold Therapy: The application of heat can help relax tense muscles, while cold therapy can reduce inflammation and provide pain relief.
Pain Management: We may incorporate various pain-relieving techniques such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, or trigger point therapy.
We may provide guidance on lifestyle changes, such as avoiding prolonged sitting, maintaining proper posture, and using proper body mechanics to prevent further aggravation of coccydynia.
