Tailbone Pain/Coccyx Pain

Tailbone pain can be extremely uncomfortable and painful. It can prevent you from sitting for any period of time and keep you from getting comfortable at night when you go to sleep. The pain may be sharp or dull in nature, usually near the tailbone and can refer pain to your glutes.  There can be pain on bowel movement and sometimes even cause constipation. The causes of tailbone pain can be from falling, sitting too long especially on a hard cold surface, or even pregnancy,

There are different ways to adjust the coccyx.  The last resort is an internal coccyx adjustment and this can be extremely uncomfortable. Dr. Perry has been able to help patients find relief without medications or surgery. We focus on a natural approach to helping your body correct and heal itself.

Pain in the tailbone can be a result of the muscles around the bone becoming inflamed and stiff. When this happens the tailbone can get pulled out of alignment. The misalignment of the tailbone often results in compressed nerves and irritation. Chiropractic care focuses on the health and proper alignment of the spine.

Chiropractic care is shown to effectively treat tailbone pain for many patients. It is a safe and efficient method of treatment. It is noninvasive and doesn’t have the risks that are associated with surgery and medication. By allowing a chiropractor to treat the source of the problem you are helping your body heal naturally.
