Hello... the very basic treatment for your coccyx fracture of course is the scooty tube or the coccyx pillow along with rest. Also try getting your serum calcium and vitamin D3 levels checked via blood test, if those two levels or even if vitamin D3 is less then it could be the reason for the slow process of healing. So accordingly you need to tak the calcium supplements for 2-3 months and the d3 supplement calcirol sachets twice per week for 10 weeks to make your bones strong and to improve the healing process
