Types of Pain and Problems


Coccydynia is pain in the coccyx or as it is better known tailbone. The two most common causes are falling backwards as well as childbirth. However, in about one third of the cases the cause of coccydynia is unknown. The most common complaints is pain while sitting down, which is caused by the coccyx dislocating as you sit. In many cases manipulation of the area can give relief. For others an injection of cortisone will help. In the most severe cases implantation of spinal cord stimulation give the greatest relief.
