Otherwise known as tailbone pain, this condition is more common in women than it is in men and is typically caused by a traumatic injury, such as a backwards fall or childbirth. Unlike pain caused by herniations or facet joints in the lower back, coccydynia is typically not accompanied by radiculopathy or nerve pain.
Treatments are typically non-surgical and involve a combination of physical therapy, steroid injections, and occasionally radio-frequency ablation/rhizotomy to disable pain signals from being registered by the brain.
