Fell down steps 5 years ago

My story is like so many others.

I fell down 18 steps, (very lucky to be alive). Work sent me to their doctor. He took x-rays, told me that I have a displaced tailbone, and there is nothing really he could do for me.

Did suggest that I lose weight. He stated that maybe that would help the healing process. HA

It has now been 5 years since I went for a tumble, and the pain is still there. I don't have any trouble sitting, I have trouble standing and walking for any period of time. It is a strange feeling. It feels as if my lower back (trunk area) just needs to be cracked, like you would crack a back.

Not sure what to do anymore... Any suggestions?
