Coccydynia Treatment | Dublin, Ireland 2023

Coccydynia, also known as tailbone pain, is a problem that can stem from numerous causes. It can occur suddenly or gradually and be sharp or dull. The pain may feel like it’s coming from the base of your spine, or you may only feel discomfort when sitting or lying down. Most importantly, coccydynia can significantly impact your quality of life. But there’s no need to suffer – chiropractic care can help!

Chiropractic care & laser therapy for lumbar coccydynia can provide relief from pain & discomfort. Adjustments target areas of spinal misalignment, while laser therapy reduces inflammation & increases blood flow to the tissues. Together, these therapies can reduce coccyx pain & stiffness.

At our office in Dublin, Ireland, we treat coccydynia by first determining the underlying cause of the pain. Once we know what’s causing the problem, we develop a customized treatment plan to address the issue. This may include spinal manipulations, gentle stretching and exercises, ice/heat therapy, and education on how to properly take care of your back at home. With proper diagnosis and treatment, coccydynia is a condition that can be effectively managed and often resolved completely. So don’t wait – if you’re dealing with tailbone pain, give us a call today!

Tailbone Pain Treatment

What is coccydynia and how does it differ from other types of back pain?

As a Chiropractor, I am often asked about Coccydynia, a type of coccyx or tailbone pain that many patients experience. Coccydynia is unique from other types of back pain in its location and the fact that it has several possible causes. 

Chiropractic treatment provides a non-surgical option for addressing Coccydynia as well as other lumbar pain by targeting nerve pressure or misalignments in the spine to alleviate symptoms without the risks and invasiveness of surgery. 

At-home care can also be an effective tool to relieve coccydynia as well as heat or cold packs, stretching, massage therapy and lifestyle modifications such as adding exercise into your routine.

How can you treat coccydynia at home with simple exercises and stretches?

Chiropractic care can be an effective non-surgical treatment for back pain, and at-home exercises and stretches can help to reduce pain and support healing. 

Chiropractors are trained to identify the source of back pain, stress, or tension that might be causing coccydynia symptoms in the lumbar area. Depending on your individual needs, chiropractors may utilize manual adjustments or physical therapy techniques such as massage, cold laser therapy, exercise and stretching techniques to reduce inflammation and realign the spine. 

Working with a chiropractor to develop a personalized treatment plan aimed at relieving coccydynia pain effectively at home each day can greatly improve symptoms over time.
