Most injuries to the tailbone, or coccyx, cause bruising and pain. However, the bones rarely are fractured. Our orthopedists can help manage your pain while you recover.


We will examine you and may suggest X-rays to confirm your diagnosis. We may recommend an at-home treatment and pain management plan that includes rest, sitting on a cushion or gel donut, icing the injured area, taking anti-inflammatory medicine and eating a diet high in fiber and drinking plenty of fluids.
