What leads to Tailbone Injuries?

An injury to the tailbone or coccyx is really painful and may take more than 5 to 6 weeks to heal (depends on the extent of the injury). Some of the factors that leads to tailbone injuries are the following:
• Hitting the tailbone against a hard surface which happens usually when falling from the stairs or slipping while walking on smooth surfaces.
• Direct blow to the tailbone during a traumatic accident.
• Repetitive pressure or friction on the tailbone from automobile and sports related works like cycling, riding a bike, gymnastics etc.
• Osteoarthritis
• Fracture to tailbone during childbirth.
• Infection or tumour in the spinal area.
• Injuries to other parts of the spine.
Tailbone injuries are seen more common in women than in men as the tailbone is more exposed in women thereby increasing the risk of injury.

Signs & Symptoms of Tailbone Injury

The common signs and symptoms of tailbone injuries include:
• Excruciating pain or tenderness in the tailbone area which worsens while sitting for longer periods of time.
• Bruise or redness in the tailbone region if the injury was traumatic.
• Swelling in the tailbone or coccyx region.
• Severe pain while trying to sit or stand and during bowel movements.
• A lump or mass on your tailbone
• Weakness in the legs
• Numbness or tingling in the buttocks or legs.
These symptoms of tailbone may be severe in older adults (especially women), particularly those affected with osteoarthritis. So, if you see any of the above symptoms it is better to get diagnosed with a doctor immediately so that you can understand the severity of your injury and can get treatment accordingly.
