Coccydynia is the medical term meaning pain in the coccyx or tailbone area, which is usually caused by sitting too abruptly. Coccydynia also known as coccygodynia, coccygeal pain, coccyx pain or tailbone pain.
There are a few common causes that may develop coccydynia.
The three main causes for this condition are:
1. A sudden impact due to fall on the coccyx area.
2. By childbirth pressure in women.
3. Excessive sitting causing repetitive trauma to the surrounding ligaments and muscles resulting in inflammation and pain in the tailbone region.
In our clinics we often see people who are unable to sit due to pain in the tailbone area and need the right coccyx cushion to remove all the pressure within this area. That’s why we have found the best coccyx cushions for you so you can sit for long periods of time pain free. The coccyx cushions we recommend have a cut out in the coccyx area so that there is no pressure in this area and your body weight is dispersed through your pelvis and lower back.
All the cushions we recommend are able to be used in the office, home or in the car and are suitable for wheelchairs.
