Nevertheless, this is a highly sensitive part of the musculoskeletal system, and when it becomes painful, it affects the range of motion and transmits pain to the surrounding areas, so you will undoubtedly need an examination by a physiatrist and advice on treatment.
At the Fizionova Center, we have experts in the field of physical therapy and rehabilitation, making us the right place for the treatment and diagnosis of over 50 different conditions and injuries. Coccyx pain (coccydynia) is one of them.
We use state-of-the-art therapeutic procedures and devices that represent the latest in technology, so through planned rehabilitation, we can quickly bring patients to recovery.
Schedule an examination, and you are on the right path to a healthier life without pain.
Treatment of Coccyx Pain at the Fizinova Center
Establishing the appropriate diagnosis is the first step in treating coccyx pain.
Different causes require different treatments, and our physiatrists insist on a detailed examination and a description of your symptoms that will unequivocally indicate that it is coccydynia and not another problem that is being reflected here.
Once we confirm the condition at Fizionova, we recommend treatment and protocols No. 4 and No. 36, which are designed to match the cause of the pain, your health condition, and the course of recovery. Focused Shock Wave Therapy (FSWT) is also used as a supplement to therapeutic protocols, but the recommendations change depending on the course of treatment.
During the treatment, you are constantly monitored and supervised, so the procedures are adjusted during the treatment. This is how we achieve the best results.
We will also provide you with advice that arises from our many years of work, which can help you at home.
For some, sitting carefully with a forward tilt may be helpful, while others may need a soft cushion for sitting and longer walks. We recommend increasing fibre intake to reduce pressure on the rectum and heating and cooling this area to reduce discomfort.
Recommendations are not universal and vary depending on the cause of the pain, its intensity, and how limited the movements are.
Do not use unverified advice or take matters into your own hands. The goal is to solve the problem non-invasively and avoid surgery, which is the last option.

We provide our patients with truly revolutionary methods for the regeneration and recovery of the musculoskeletal system, as evidenced by the fact that we are the only ones in all of Southeastern Europe to have a device that provides focused shock wave therapy for injuries and pain.
This device emits high-density acoustic waves that, when in the area of the affected area, accelerate the regeneration of soft tissues and bones. It is an excellent complement to the treatment of coccyx pain and brings significant relief to patients.
What Is Coccydynia?
Coccydynia is the medical term for pain that occurs in the area of the coccyx bone.
Although the coccyx bone does not have a significant function, it is located in an area with many nerves, ligaments, and tendons, making it a highly sensitive region if the coccyx bone is injured.
It manifests as pain just above the buttocks, at the very end of the spine, and different movements become painful and burdensome.
Coccydynia occurs as moderate or intense pain, especially when:
- Rising from a seated position,
- Using the bathroom,
- Engaging in sexual intercourse,
- During pregnancy and menstruation,
- Leaning backwards while seated.
Sometimes, coccydynia is felt precisely in the area where the coccyx bone is located, and sometimes the pain radiates down the leg, resembling conditions like sciatica. Characteristically, during standing and walking, the pain diminishes, so patients are not entirely clear about the nature of the problem.
At Fizionova, we understand how persistent pain affects daily life, and we will do everything to ensure that treatments provide the fastest possible relief.
You need to contact us and schedule an examination, and we will assess your health condition and prescribe the appropriate therapy.
Causes of Coccyx Pain
When it comes to coccyx pain, the causes can be various:
- Coccyx Fracture.
- Inflammation of soft tissues in the vicinity.
- Prolonged sitting and improper posture during sitting.
- Rapid weight loss.
- Pregnancy and childbirth.
In addition to these main causes of pain, the cause can also be a psychological condition or tumours. It is crucial to approach the problem correctly and then work on a solution.
A coccyx fracture occurs in accidents or severe impacts in this region. A fracture or dislocation will result in persistent pain that requires a physiatrist's assistance until the bones heal.
Prolonged sitting and improper posture in this area lead to cartilage wear and more frequent pain, especially during prolonged strain. The greater the strain, the more intense the pain.
The same happens when an overweight person loses a significant number of pounds, leaving the coccyx bone more exposed and without protection. This leads to pain with each strain.
Inflammation of ligaments and pregnancy are two separate conditions, but both affect the coccyx bone, causing persistent pain. Coccydynia lasts shorter when soft tissue inflammation is present, while in the case of pregnancy, the problem often continues even after giving birth.
Women have a five times higher probability of experiencing tailbone pain during pregnancy than men.
What to Do If You Experience Tailbone Pain During Pregnancy?
Coccydynia most commonly occurs during the third trimester of pregnancy when the body prepares for rapid fetal growth and subsequent birth. Ligaments become more lax, bones move, and the tailbone part experiences increasing pressure.
Dear ladies, schedule an examination at the Fizionova Center and allow us to alleviate all your discomfort. We have a plan and program of work in this case, and we will also provide useful advice to help alleviate the painful condition.
The symptoms will most likely subside shortly after giving birth, but we recommend a follow-up so that our physiatrists can assess any changes after returning the bones to their original position.
Young mothers soon after giving birth have a different load on their spine, bending and carrying the baby, which again puts pressure on the entire musculature, especially the back. We are here to help you in this case as well.
