- Disabling pain in the coccyx, usually provoked by sitting or rising from sitting.
- May be traumatic (e.g., a fall or childbirth) or idiopathic in origin.
- More common in women.
- Conservative management includes pressure-relieving cushions, local corticosteroid injections, and/or coccygeal manipulation.
- Surgery (coccygectomy) is highly effective in recalcitrant post-traumatic coccygodynia.
- It is important to rule out local pathology, such as tumours or infection.
