Tailbone pain, also known as coccyx pain or coccydynia, is defined by a painful sensation right at the bottom of the spine and above the buttock, where the bony structure of the coccyx is. The causes can be various: whether it is because of an overuse injury during a sports activity (cycling, rowing) or after a fall.
But it is also one of the most common pains in pregnant women. During the last trimester of pregnancy and because of the baby growing, ligaments surrounding the coccyx get loose to make more room, moving the coccyx. This is why more women are victims of tailbone pain than men. Plus, it can also happen during and after vaginal childbirth.
So what are the symptoms and how is it possible to manage tailbone pain?
The London Marathon is one of the most exciting races to participate in. With over 35,000 runners at the starting line, it can be exhilarating and gruelling at the same time.

Correct preparation is key to your success and a personal trainer can help you stay focused on your goal. But most importantly, a specialised sports physio or osteo can help you recover faster from your training, help you with stretching and strengthening, work on your joints and back to minimise the impact of long running, and help you recover faster from eventual injuries in order to avoid missing your training for too long. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned runner, our team can help you get the best out of yourself.
