Coccydynia
Coccydynia is a type of lower back pain felt around the last bone at the base of the spine (known as the coccyx or tailbone).
Causes of coccydinia
Coccydynia occurs when your coccyx, or the surrounding tissue, becomes damaged. This causes pain and discomfort at the base of your spine.
Treating coccydinia
The treatment for coccydynia will vary depending on what is causing your condition and how painful it is.
