Pain In The Coccyx When Sitting?
I want to ask. After giving birth, how come my tailbone hurts when I sit down. And to fix this, I have to tilt my dduk position to reduce the pressure, but it’s been almost 2 months, how come it hasn’t gone right, because my sitting position is wrong?
Pain in the coccyx can be caused by several causes, one of which often occurs due to childbirth, where during labor there is excessive strain on the muscles and ligaments around the tailbone which causes instability or injury to the tailbone. For that, pay attention to the position of the body when sitting, standing, or lying down to keep it good. Choose a comfortable position, especially when changing positions or when defecating or urinating, use pain relievers as recommended by your doctor, compress the painful area with cold or warm compresses, and avoid strenuous activities. Use soft seating and avoid sitting on hard surfaces for too long to reduce the onset of pain.
If the pain continues to increase or interfere, consult a doctor or an orthopedist for further tests for further examination and treatment. Self-examination such as X-rays or MRI scans if needed.
The degree of severity of tail pain itself varies and can cause other symptoms such as back pain, pain radiating to the legs, pain radiating to the buttocks and others. In mild degrees postpartum pain can heal after a few months but can also be severe and require further treatment.
Tailbone pain other than due to childbirth can be caused by trauma or impact, a history of other injuries, fracture of the coccyx, joint inflammation, spinal cord disorders, tumors in the bones or other conditions.
