Hi, Tailbone pain, also called coccydynia or coccygodynia, usually goes away on its own within a few weeks or months. To lessen tailbone pain in the meantime, it might help to:
Lean forward while sitting down.
Sit on a doughnut-shaped pillow or wedge (V-shaped) cushion.
Apply heat or ice to the affected area.

If your tailbone pain doesn't improve (chronic coccydynia), consult your doctor for rectal exam to rule out any other conditions. MRI to find out if fracture, degenerative changes or, in rare cases, a tumor.
Kindly consult orthopedician....
