Coccydynia is a painful condition characterized by pain over the tailbone area particularly increased with pressure over the area. Patients with coccydynia will report significant pain with sitting. It can be related to trauma, degeneration, childbirth, and prolonged sitting with pressure on the tailbone. At times however the pain can appear with no identifiable cause.
