Tailbone Pain

In most cases, the pain is thought to be caused by an unstable coccyx, which results in chronic inflammation of the sacro-coccygeal joint. Women are much more likely to experience coccydynia, since they have a wider pelvis, making the coccyx more exposed.

Coccydynia can be treated non-surgically with anti-inflammatory medication, injections, or a “donut” pillow to sit on. In severe cases the coccyx can be removed (coccygectomy).
