Do you ever wake up to a dreadfully tight pain at the very lowest point of your back? Or perhaps you feel it if you’ve been sitting on a hard, flat surface for a long time. Tailbone pain consists of cycles of both dull aches and sharp pains. Injuries can result from a number of things including a fall, joint issues, or vaginal childbirth.
Let It Go Naturally
Most tailbone pain will go away on its own after a few weeks. But to help you ease your discomfort, here are a few things you can try at home:
- Using a donut pillow or cushion when seated
- Applying ice and heat in cycles
- Taking a recommended amount of over-the-counter pain relievers
- Leaning forward when sitting down
If the Tailbone Pain Still Doesn’t Go Away
There’s a chance that your pain will continue. In those cases, schedule to see your doctor to talk about it. They might do a few tests to see if there’s a possible diagnosis or cause. For those looking for more natural relief, physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care may be the solution you need.
- Physical therapy – learn exercises to help strengthen that part of the body to alleviate soreness and tension
- Massage therapy –the surrounding muscles may simply be extremely tense; a massage can help alleviate and get them to loosen up
- Chiropractic care – relief could also come from a quick adjustment of the lower back to get the full spine realigned
Tailbone Pain Relief with Zock Family Chiropractic
Chiropractic care and wellness adjustments will help your spine get the protection it needs. It also improves the blood flow in the nervous system, and it corrects any misalignments in the spine. These misalignments compress the nerves and cause a lack of communication between the spine and the brain. This can lead to a stress response which puts the body out of balance. Luckily, this can be easily treated with chiropractic care.
