Tailbone Pain After Childbirth?
I just gave birth a week but every sitting my tailbone hurts. Why is that? And how to treat it?
From the information you have conveyed, any complaints of joint, muscle, and spinal pain after childbirth are likely the effect of muscle tension during your pregnancy. If your tailbone hurts after childbirth, this condition may be caused by pulling and straining the muscles around the tailbone and buttocks. However, it is hoped that this muscle tension will return to recovery after you have gone through a full recovery period, that is, after your postpartum period is over.
Therefore, during this period of recovery and the puerperium, you should start training your body to relax and do light movements to reduce muscle tension around the spine, coccyx and buttocks area. You can also apply warm compresses to the painful area 3 times per day, or lightly massage the area. Several methods of recovery mentioned above can be combined to get good results.
However, if this complaint persists after the puerperium is over, you can consult directly with your gynecologist for further examination and evaluation. The doctor will ensure that there is a risk of nerve compression in the area involved.
