Pain in your tailbone (or coccyx) is often felt when sitting on hard surfaces or when pressure is applied to the tailbone area. It can be sharp and painful, and is usually only alleviated by standing or walking. Since the tailbone is actually the “coccyx,” tailbone pain is called Coccydynia. Unfortunately, once the tailbone is broken or damaged it never heals completely, which can result in chronic pain. If you’re feeling sharp pain in your tailbone, and natural remedies or traditional pain relief methods aren’t bringing relief it may be time for something stronger. At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa we offer effective treatments to relieve chronic tailbone pain including cellular therapy to reduce inflammation and promote healing as well as a non-surgical coccyx injection.
Common Causes of Tailbone Pain:
A Coccyx Injection is an anesthetic mixed with a steroid to reduce inflammation and pain. The injection is inserted into the tissue surrounding the coccyx, which the bottom portion of the spine at the tailbone. Pain relief can last for several years. If the first injection is effective at relieving pain, then patients may receive up to three injections in a year.
