Thanks for posting your query.
When the injury
has just occurred you need to either apply a cold ice pack or a heated pad to the tailbone. This should be pressed onto the sore region for at least 20-30 minutes. Repeat this 3-4 times a day for the first few days after you have sustained an injury.
Pain medications, such as acetaminophen
, can help relieve some of the pain and discomfort.
Try to avoid situations that require sitting for extended periods of time.
The recovery time is dependent on the severity of the injury or cause. As the accident was mild, such as falling onto your tailbone from a low height, the recovery time will most likely only be a few weeks.
If your tailbone pain
does not ease after a week or two, consult a doctor. orthopedic surgeon. Your doctor may require you to undergo an MRI, in order to determine if your tailbone is fractured.
