In our Denver chiropractic clinic, we often see cases of tailbone pain walking through our doors for treatment. Tailbone pain, or coccydynia, is an uncomfortable condition that many people seek out care for due to the intensity of pain and the disruption of basic activities such as sitting, standing, and walking. Treatment methods are customized in our clinic based on where and how the pain presents.
What Causes Tailbone Pain?
- Direct impacts – Falls, accidents, or direct blows to the tailbone region.
- Spontaneous – At times, there is no reason for the pain to present in the patient’s mind. This is typically called idiopathic coccydynia. Excessive sitting, altered biomechanics, or pelvic musculature are theories.
- Referred pain – There could be other conditions or injuries in the body that could contribute to the pain
- Fractures – Although much less common, fractures can present in the coccyx or pelvic unit.
Is Chiropractic Treatment for the Tailbone Painful?
