Goodbye, Pain in the Butt

Ah, tailbone pain. The bane of our existence, the thorn in our side, the pain in our you-know-what. But fear not, with a few simple changes to your daily habits, you too can reduce your tailbone pain. Let's start with the basics: cold packs and hot packs. Whether you prefer ice or heat, these little beauties can do wonders for a sore coccyx. Just pop one on for 10-15 minutes a few times a day, and voila! Pain be gone.

Next up: alignment and cushions. Well, I hate to break it to you, but that couch is only making things worse. It's time to embrace the more upright, comfortable chair and say goodbye to the slumpy posture. And if you really want to step up your game, invest in a good tailbone cushion. Just make sure it has a back cut-out.

Now I'm a big fan of body scanning or "check-ins." Not just for tailbone pain, but for life in general. It's always good to know if you're clenching muscles around your tailbone, right? And if you are, just drop 'em like they're hot and let them relax.

Pelvic floor drops might sound like something you'd do at the gym, but they're actually a great way to encourage a completely relaxed pelvic floor. And who doesn't want a relaxed pelvic floor, am I right? Just pair them with some breathing exercises, and you're good to go.

Finally, we have pelvic opening stretches. I mean, how can you not love a stretch that not only helps with buttock muscles but also promotes relaxation for the pelvic floor? It's like a two-for-one deal. There are plenty of other stretches to choose from. Just don't forget to stretch those muscles around the pelvis! But wait, there's more! Manual therapy techniques can also do wonders for tailbone pain. Soft tissue treatments, coccyx mobilisation, lumbar and sacroiliac


So, there you have it. A quick guide to dealing with tailbone woes. By incorporating these simple changes into your daily routine can make a big difference in reducing tailbone pain.
