7:01 One of our favorite hip stretches for tailbone pain
It happens. Maybe you slip on ice, sit in an uncomfortable position for too long, or land on your tailbone with a fall, tailbone pain can be uncomfortable and nagging, but with a help of a few exercises, you can be on your way to recovery! Tailbone pain is typically a result of trauma right to the coccyx area but this does not always have to be the cause! We know that the pelvic floor, a series of muscles that sit and support our hip bone and low back region, can also play a role in possible tailbone discomfort. If you feel this could be the cause of your tailbone pain, we recommend reaching out to a local physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor rehab.
