Experiencing Pain in Your Tailbone But Don't Know What to Do About It?

If you’ve ever sat down or bent over and felt shooting pain in your tailbone, you may have felt confused. It’s not every day that we feel discomfort in this area! Tailbone pain, also called coccydynia or coccygodynia, typically will disappear on its own within a few weeks or months, however, it does have the potential to become a chronic issue.

Thankfully, you don’t have to wait the pain out. Pelvic floor therapy can help relieve this kind of discomfort in adults and children through several techniques.

The Benefits of Seeing a Pelvic Floor Therapist:

Pelvic floor therapy is an advanced and innovative treatment approach designed to address pelvic floor and pelvic girdle issues. Through various techniques, this therapy enhances the strength, mobility, and overall functionality of the pelvic floor, hip, core, and reproductive systems. By targeting the root causes of these problems, pelvic floor therapy offers effective solutions and empowers individuals to overcome their pelvic health challenges.

What Causes Tailbone Pain:

  • Tailbone pain occurs in or around the bottom of the spine, or the coccyx. This specific type of pain can be caused by many factors, including trauma to the coccyx after a hard fall, sitting for too long on a hard surface (chairs, floors), joint changes due to age, or childbirth.

  • Pain in the tailbone is usually described as feeling dull or aching, but it can become unbearable sharp while sitting or getting up from a seating position to a standing one. It may also become difficult to go to the bathroom, and intercourse may be painful as well. Tailbone pain can cause complications with menstruation. Children may also have issues with bowel movements as a result of a coccyx injury.

  • If you’re unsure whether or not you’ve sustained an injury to your tailbone that is causing you pain, it’s a good idea to get checked out by a medical professional to determine what the issue might be!

How Can Pelvic Floor Therapy Help Treat Sacral & Coccyx Pain?

Pelvic floor physical therapy can benefit patients struggling with coccyx pain in many ways. Here at Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance in Fort MyersCape Coral physical therapy & Estero, FL, our skilled therapists can show you or your child how to do pelvic floor relaxation techniques. These may include methods such as deep breathing while completely relaxing your pelvic floor (as you would while going to the bathroom.)

A pelvic floor specialist can help determine what the underlying cause is contributing to your pain problem. They know how to properly assess sacrococcygeal joint movement to ensure that there are no abnormalities or complications.

Your pelvic floor therapist may recommend mobilization treatments for your tailbone, especially if you’ve suffered from a fall. They may also recommend ice and heat treatments, pelvic floor relaxation techniques, and yoga poses you can perform to relax your hip muscles.

If you or your child have coccyx pain, don’t wait until it becomes unbearable to seek help. The earlier you begin treatment at Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance, the better your overall outcome will be and the quicker you’ll be able to return to a comfortable life.

The Pelvic Floor Conditions We Treat

Groin Pain

Pain During Intercourse


Pain with Defecating

Did you know that your pelvic floor muscles can clench up? There are many reasons why this happens (such as injury, operations, lifting heavy objects, stress, scar tissue, a sedentary lifestyle, etc) but thankfully, a Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapist can help determine exactly what is causing your pain and how you can prevent it in the future.

There are several different types of prostatectomies, and you may be experiencing a complication from yours if you’ve had one. Many men deal with urinary incontinence after a prostatectomy.

This condition results in inflammation and swelling, and occurs in the prostate gland. Prostatitis can be caused by a bacterial infection that can be cured through antibiotics. If you are diagnosed with chronic prostatitis, however, this is a long-term problem that will require more help than medication can offer.

Your pudendal nerve travels through your pelvic floor muscles. If those muscles are too tight, this nerve can become irritated. If this nerve is compressed for too long, you may begin experiencing painful symptoms.
