COCCYDYNIA/TAILBONE PAIN

Coccydynia or tailbone pain is one of the most common aches that pregnant women experience.  The coccyx is a joint that’s at the very bottom of your spine. It sits right behind your uterus. Your growing baby pushing against it, hormones, and other issues like constipation can contribute to pain.

This condition can last from a few weeks to a few months which can severely affect your ability to carry out every day activities.

Women who suffer from coccydynia may have

  • a dull and achy pain most of the time, with occasional sharp pains

  • be worse when sitting down, moving from sitting to standing, standing for long periods, having sex and going for a poo

  • difficulty with carrying out everyday activities, such as driving or bending over

  • Some women also have back pain, shooting leg pains and painful buttocks and hips.

Treatment may consist of

  • education on modifying activities of daily living

  • pelvic floor muscle relaxation techniques

  • gentle exercises to relieve pain

  • hands on treatment to relieve area of pain
