Performed knee drop, pain and red mark on tailbone, difficulty walking. Causes?

My 10 year old daughter is a competitive dancer. Today at dance she did a knee drop , where she goes from standing and falls to the ground, landing on one knee. Afterwards, her tailbone started hurting. It hurts to walk. When she changed out of her bodysuit, she noticed a red mark on her tailbone. She didn t hit her tailbone on anything, didn t fall on it and her tailbone never made any contact with the floor (or anything else). What could cause the soreness and redness?

Thank you for posting your query.

It is likely to be a sprain, as there is no direct injury to the tailbone. Also, since it happened while performing a dance, it seems to be related to the physical movements performed during the dance.

As of now, she needs to take analgesics such as Ibuprofen or diclofenac. She should get better in a few days. If not, you can show her to a doctor.

Best wishes,
