Dear it is coccynodynia. Get a x-ray of coccyx. Avoid triggering posture, take analgesic, do pelvic floor relaxation excercises. Sit with forward bending which will take coccyx off the chair, can try sitting on inflated tube or soft cushion for few weeks till things get better. If still worsening or same we can try injection in coccyx with manipulation.

Hi, following treatment options are available.. Physical therapy. A physical therapist might show you how to do pelvic floor relaxation techniques, such as breathing deeply and completely relaxing your pelvic floor — as you would while urinating or defecating.Manipulation. Massaging the muscles attached to the tailbone might help ease pain. Manipulation is typically done through the rectum.Medication. An injection of a local anesthetic into the tailbone can relieve pain for a few weeks. Certain antidepressants or anti-epileptic medications might relieve tailbone pain as well.Surgery. During a procedure known as a coccygectomy, the coccyx is surgically removed. This option is typically only recommended when all other treatments fail. Consult Orthopedician...
