The Authors report a case of coccygodynia following a car accident and describe the therapeutic approach used. In view of the clinical characteristics of pain and the limited quality and duration of benefits, it was proposed to insert an epidural neurostimulation electrode in an attempt to normalise the threshold of neuronal activity at the level of the spine.
