Coccyx pain: causes and treatments
It is very common in the doctor's office to complain of complaints of pain in the coccyx. It is a type of frequent pain, but almost unknown by the population and with different origins.
The coccyx is a multi-segmented bone, located in the lower part of the spine, just above the buttocks. It is relatively small but plays important roles to help maintain the stability of the body in the movement of sitting or squatting. Many tendons, muscles, and ligaments perform movements through the coccyx.
Causes of pain in the coccyx
The causes of pain in this bone are varied, but may arise from everyday attitudes such as sitting on a bench hard or other uncomfortable surface for a long period of time. The pain can also be caused by sensitization of innervation (odd ganglion), by repetitive movements, or by general wear and tear as a result of aging.
In women, pain may also be caused by cracking, dislocation or cracking of the coccyx. pregnant during the last trimester of gestation, the ligaments connected and around the coccyx naturally can loosen to make room for the baby and cause pain, so according to the National Health Service, women are about five times more likely to experience pain in the coccyx than men.
The person who is overweight is also more likely to have problems with the coccyx. The problem is that if you lose weight fast, you will also lose the filling that protects the coccyx which makes the region more vulnerable to pain.
In rare cases, pain in the coccyx can occur even because of an infection or tumor.
Treatment of pain in the coccyx
Treatment of pain in the coccyx begins with physiotherapy and the patient is recommended to change immediately habits, such as sitting on hard surfaces. The evolution of the condition suggests the use of medications and even procedures to block pain or use of radiofrequency. Surgery to remove the coccyx is increasingly disused, except in special situations of severe displacement.
Therefore, the orientation of the correct treatment, mainly to avoid surgery, becomes necessary. It is essential that all treatment options are studied before the surgical procedure is chosen.
