This article is intended to overview my perspective on exercise for patients with coccydynia.

What if one day, for no apparent reason, you started having pain when you tried to sit. No injury proceeded this- no fall, no sexual trauma, no infection. Just a seemly random, inexplicable pain at your tailbone in sitting.
Chronic lower back discomfort. Stiff neck. Pelvic floor dysfunction such as pain with intercourse or urinary incontinence. Inability to sit squarely or for long periods of time. Pain with bowel movements. These are symptoms I see commonly grouped together in patients coming for treatment. What’s the connection?
