Coccydnia (Tailbone pain) is a condition where the person feels pain at the bottom of his spine (at the coccyx bone). Usually this pain is persistent and it gets worse when the person sits or perform any activity where the pressure on the coccyx increases.
Women are likely to acquire coccydynia more than men!
Because the structure of coccyx differ. While sitting, men bear weight on the lower part of the hip called (ischila tuberosity) while women bear weight on the coccyx itself.
The main cause of coccydynia is the pressure so the best way to reduce the pain is by alleviation of the pain.
1-Reduce the daily sitting hours.
2-Don't sit on hard surfaces.
3-Use the coccyx donut cushion: it's available in all pharmacies.
A combination of the exercises and the tips will help in reducing the pain!
