Coccydynia in Gilbert, AZ

Coccydynia Treatment Options

  • Rest and otherwise modifying activities to alleviate cumulative pressure off tailbone
  • Medication: over-the-counter pain relievers or topical creams, prescription pain medications, or muscle relaxers
  • Yoga, functional mobility training, or gentle stretching
  • Physical or chiropractic therapy
  • Supportive pillows or using cushions on office chairs, car seats, etc.
  • Heat or ice therapy
  • Steroid injection
  • Coccygeal nerve block

Because being overweight or underweight places increased pressure on the coccyx, your healthcare professional may ask you to lose or gain weight in conjunction with other non-surgical treatment options. Losing weight too rapidly may exacerbate symptoms of coccydynia.
