Sports Injuries • Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy  • Acupuncture • Visceral Therapy


Coccydynia is pain in the coccyx or tailbone, and is often worst when sitting.  It is often caused by:

  • Pelvic floor muscle, and/or buttock muscle over activity
    • May be due to several factors, including:
      • Vaginal delivery
      • Pelvic surgery
      • Scar tissue from an old injury
      • Sexual abuse
      • Muscle imbalance
      • Habitual postures that promote “butt gripping”
  • An injury to the coccyx, such as a direct fall on the tailbone
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction may cause alignment issues that cause pain at the coccyx
    • Hypermobility or hypomobility in the low back and/or SI joint

How Angela Simpson Physiotherapy can help you:

  • Educate the client about the cause of the condition
  • Teach the client how to not only contract the pelvic floor muscles, but also learn how to relax these muscles
  • Teach the client new posture/positions to sit, stand and move in to prevent this pain fromcoming on-possibly an internal pelvic exam, which may include mobilization of the internal tissues
  • Car tissue release either externally or internally
