Hey, it’s Dr. Troy here. The Vancouver chiropractor.
I want to talk about coccyx pain.
Patients always go, hey Dr. Troy I have this tailbone; that’s really what the coccyx is it’s the lower three vertebra below the sacrum. I’ll show you. Here this is your sacrum and there’s the tailbone also known as the coccyx.
A lot of patients will say, “Hey Dr. Troy I have pain here.” So, we’ll do a history, we will find out what caused it.
Trauma is one of the big culprits in creating coccyx pain. Maybe they landed funny and ever since then the coccyx got injured. That joint actually can move right in there, there are internal maneuvers which aren’t allowed in Washington but sometimes that might help. But, specifics spinal adjustments can help reduce the nerve pressure on the spine, on the sacrum to help reduce coccyx pain.
Also, pregnancy, a lot of pregnant patients report coccyx pain. People who have been in car accidents report that. Especially if they have their foot on the brake and they get hit in a side-impact, I will see that a lot too.
So pain in the tailbone or coccyx area, chiropractic might be right for you.
Call our office (360) 260 -6903. We will do an examination, evaluation to determine if chiropractic can help you.
