Coccydynia is the name for persistent pain in the tailbone (coccyx). Pain can range from tenderness when sitting or leaning, to painful aching which can be debilitating for some people who suffer from it.
The condition is more prevalent in women than men, although ED Clinics treats both. If you would someone of your own gender to be present in the room, that can be arranged.
Sometimes coccydynia can resolve itself within a few weeks, but many patients can live with persistent pain for years. It is important that these people know that there are treatment options available.
Shockwave therapy is an effective treatment for most cases of coccydynia, and has been extensively used in clinical practices to treat the condition. If you would like to speak to a clinician about your condition and whether shockwave therapy might be a good treatment option for you, you can find your nearest ED Clinic below.
