Intro: Coccydynia involves pain of the coccyx, the tail end of the spine..
Symptoms: Pain on prolonged sitting especially on hard surfaces.
Treatment: Activity modification and medication. Use of a tailbone seat cushion may help as well. Occasionally, a steroid injection at the coccyx may help provide relief.
Tailbone Seat Cushion
The tailbone seat cushion helps relieve pressure off the tailbone, which may be helpful in conditions such as coccydynia. The indentation is placed backwards so the tailbone avoids minimal surface contact.
