Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the tailbone that you are having is likely to be due to the injury in the area. Most likely it is a soft tissue injury which usually takes 3-4 weeks to recover. If the pain is sever then an MRI scan is advisable to detect any bony injury.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
