PSA for anyone else who has tailbone pain - I have some possible helpful information - everyone else can just stop here. I’ve had a specific pain in my ass (besides the usual human ones) for several years now. I assumed it was because I lost a lot of weight, and my once ample booty is flat, with excess skin as well, resulting in direct pressure on my coccyx. I did not have a fall or any reason to suspect an injury. I have just lived with it, trying multiple types of butt pillows with tailbone cutouts, and/or sitting cocked up on one hip, but nothing worked very well or for long periods of sitting. Recently, it got much worse, and started hurting even after I stood up. I finally decided to ask for help. After first getting X-rays to make sure there wasn’t anything wrong with the bones, I was told I could get a referral to either pain management or physical therapy. Since I didn’t want to take drugs, I opted for PT. After only ONE appointment, things were already better. I’m astonished. Apparently, although the pain feels like it’s in the bone itself, it’s a muscle issue. I’m doing exercises to strengthen and stretch weak tight smaller muscles that have attachments to the coccyx under the larger surface butt muscles, plus getting deep tissue massage in those muscles, and electrical muscle stimulation (TENS). PT three times a week and home exercises. I wish I had known this was possible 2-3 years ago.
