A coccyx injury results in pain and discomfort in the tailbone area. Although they might be sluggish to heal, most of coccyx injuries can be handled with cautious therapy. Most of coccyx injuries occur in women, due to the fact that the female pelvis is broader and the coccyx is more revealed. Most tailbone injuries are triggered by injury to the coccyx area. A fall onto the tailbone in the seated position, usually against a hard surface area, is one of the most common root cause of coccyx injuries. Repeated straining or friction against the coccyx can injure the coccyx. Less common causes of coccyx injuries consist of bone spurs, compression of nerve origins, injuries to other components of the spine, regional infections, and tumors. Serious localized pain and tenderness might be really felt in the tailbone area. The pain is usually worse when resting for long term periods of time, or with direct pressure to the tailbone area. Some women might experience pain throughout sex-related intercourse.
