Does Coccydynia sound familiar to you? Coccydinia disease turns out as commonly disease attacked by many people.
What Is Coccydynia?
Perhaps more popularly known by the public is Tailbone Pain or Coccyx pain. But rather is the damage to the tissues that exist in the tail bone, it causes pain, especially when a person sits.
What Is The Cause Of Coccydynia?
- Trauma from slipped and then fall in sitting position.
- Trauma after giving birth. Mothers who carry the baby for 9 months means carrying excessive body weight, therefore, move slowly when you want to sit or stand, because the coccyx (tail bone) more depressed than usual (when not pregnant). And the tail bone suppression occurs when the mother gave birth to the baby.
- Mobility / excessive movement in the tail bone area. Often the case for people who diligently perform movements while sitting, such as RPM / biking, canoeing, off dirt, motor race, etc. Likewise for those who linger too long sitting, such as traffic and work at a computer for too long.

Symptoms Coccydynia Pain
- Pain during or after the sitting, the perceived level of pain depends on how long you sit.
- Feeling pain / pain when sitting then standing. Some scientist argue that this happens because the muscles on the coccyx move a few degrees to the abnormal position when one sits, and then when the person is standing, the muscles had pulled the coccyx bone.
- The pain is felt at the time sitting on the padded base. Scientist states that, at the time sitting on a hard base, the coccyx rests in a seated position (see video below) but when someone sits on a soft pad, tail bone depressed several degrees away from the sitting position.
- The high sensitive sense when your finger touches the tail bone.
