Tailbone (Coccyx) Injury Topic Guide
Tailbone Pain (Coccydynia): A coccyx injury results in pain and discomfort in the tailbone area (the condition is called coccydynia). These injuries may result in a bruise, dislocation, or fracture (break) of the coccyx. Treatment may involve taking pain medications, using stool softeners, corticosteroid injections, or surgical removal of the coccyx.
