If you have ever had to deal with coccyx pain you know exactly how bad it can be and how uncomfortable it can be.

Coccyx pain can drastically affect the quality of life for many people, so the best way to treat coccyx pain is to try to avoid it in the first place.


There are a number of preventive measures you can take in order to ensure that you have to deal with this type of pain again.

In some cases where people are already suffering from this pain these tips should help relieve them slowly and gradually but almost permanently.

  • Take frequent breaks
    Many people end up suffering from tailbone pain because they sit too long. Sitting puts undue stress on your tailbone which can lead to inflammation. The best way to prevent tailbone pain caused by sitting too long is to take frequent breaks. Ideally you will want to take a few minutes break every thirty or forty minutes. You can either kneel or stand or probably even take a walk prior to returning to your desk.
  • Aid your back
    People who have weak backs and have desk jobs are one of the most common sufferers of coccyx pain. These people are often chronic sufferers with some experiencing pain so immense that they need to take prescription drugs for it. The best way for these people to prevent coccyx pain is to use a coccyx cushion.

    A coccyx cushion is a special cushion that provides the back firm support which helps avoid putting pressure on the lower back. However you need to keep in mind that you shouldn’t just use any cushion because using the wrong cushion can in fact aggravate your coccyx pain.
  • Using correct posture when exercising
    If you think that a lot of your pain has something to do with your exercises you really need to make sure that you are exercising with the right form.

    While visiting the gym a few days a week is always a good idea it is important that you make sure that you are lifting weights and spending time in the fat burning zone without compromising your body’s natural posture.

    Often times lifting a heavier weight than you can or doing a few extra miles on the treadmill can hit your lower back causing some coccyx pain.

With a growing number of people suffering from coccyx pain it is important to determine and fix the causes of the pain.

If you still don’t find relief after following the tips above then you need to get your lower back thoroughly examined by a specialist, since often times the pain could also be as a result of a minor fracture or sprain.
