LOS ANGELES – September 13, 2021 – Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an influx of people suffering from back and tailbone pain. Fortunately for those in the Los Angeles area, celebrated chiropractor Dr. Steven Becker offers distinctive treatment for the onset and treatment of tailbone pain with proven, conservative, non-surgical solutions.
There are a number of reasons why so many people come to Dr. Becker’s chiropractic office to find out why their tailbones hurt. Their pain covers a range of vague aches all the way to a fiery stabbing. Tailbone pain can possibly last for days, weeks or months. Thankfully, Dr. Becker is an expert in treating tailbone pain and patients are finding significant relief from his tailbone pain treatments.
“Tailbone pain is called coccydynia,” explained Dr. Becker, who has been a chiropractor for over 30 years. “People feel tailbone pain that is sore and emanating from a small triangular bone found at the very bottom of the spinal column, just above the cleft of the buttocks.”
According to Dr. Becker, “Routines that had been in place for years came to a crashing halt when the world discovered the contagion of COVID-19 and had to stay home. People have been eating more and sit in the same position for hours on end in uncomfortable chairs, which were never designed for hours of working. Alternatively, many are sitting around in recliners or on couches, binging TV shows and not realizing that their body position is unhelpful, even if people think they are relaxing.”
He continued, “Tailbone pain makes itself known in or at the bottom of the spine around the lower, boney structure called the coccyx. People have learned during the lockdown, simply from working from home all the time, that prolonged sitting on a hard or narrow surface may cause tailbone pain. It does not go away without proper diagnosis, treatment and a change of habits.”
Tailbone pain also can be the result of leaning backward or just not getting up often enough. Some people have had trauma to the coccyx from a fall or from degenerative joint changes and it is common for women to have experienced trauma to the coccyx from normal childbirth. The pain slowly becomes evident until someone admits that treatment is needed.
The doctor treats tailbone pain with effective, non-surgical solutions including internal manipulation of the coccyx. He will begin with a general consultation and then examine the painful, affected area. After discussing treatment options, Dr. Becker will put together a plan that includes home exercises and will treat the tailbone pain so that patients can comfortably return to daily activities quickly.
