Have you ever heard of coccydynia? Actually, it’s possible you have experienced coccydynia to some extent and didn’t know what it was called. Coccydynia is tailbone pain or, more specifically, pain at the site on the very bottom of the spine, called the coccyx. Sometimes it is a dull, achy pain, but often it is a sharp pain.
The coccyx may experience pain for a variety of reasons. The Mayo Clinic cites common causes as falls, prolonged sitting, degenerative joints or vaginal birth. Also, it is known that people with certain forms of muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy can experience mild to severe coccydynia, making it difficult to lay or sit on hard surfaces.
There are several treatment options for coccydynia, including pain relievers and physical therapy. Very often, symptoms just go away, but if they persist into chronic coccydynia, you should speak with your doctor, as it could be a result of an underlying medical condition. Usually, coccydynia is no reason to worry and must simply be dealt with, and in addition to certain medications and physical therapy, you can also use positioning methods and wedges to ease and prevent pain.
Special donut-shaped seat cushions have become popular in recent years. Our Contour Kabooti Coccyx Wedge Cushion is an advanced version of these cushions. The hole in the center and back of this wedge cushion is designed to prevent the tailbone area from touching the seating surface, relieving pressure on this sensitive area. If you have trouble with this condition, the Contour Kabooti Coccyx Wedge Cushion is a common-sense solution you won’t regret. It’s great for the dining room, studio or office.
