The most common symptom of coccydynia is pain at the bottom of your spine that is aggravated when sitting down. You may also experience sensitivity to pressure applied to that area, extreme pain when rising from sitting to standing, pain during sexual intercourse, pain during bowel movements, or increased pain during menstruation or when constipated.
At the Kaplan Center our physicians have years of experience treating patients with chronic pain conditions such as coccydynia, and we completely reject the notion that “you just have to live with it.”
At your first visit, your Kaplan physician will take time exploring the onset of your condition, the specific nature of your symptoms and the overall status of your health. You’ll also be asked about the medications and therapies you’ve tried in the past, and what has and hasn’t worked for you. To gather additional information about your condition, specialized diagnostic laboratory testing may be necessary.
We offer a multitude of effective treatment options, including:
- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMT)
- Physical Therapy
- CranioSacral Therapy
- Nutritional Counseling
- Stress-Management Meditation Training
- Massage Therapy
- Prescription Medications
- Chinese & American Herbal Remedies
- Nutritional Supplements
We’re here for you, and we want to help. Our goal is to return you to optimal health as soon as possible.
