Aussie with some coccyx queries

CR -

Posted 2007-05-20

I am a healthy 28 year old female and I have had coccyx pain for the last three months. While it is very uncomfortable and annoying it is by no means debilitating. However, I do not want it to become chronic so I am very eager to get it treated properly now.

I live in Australia and am finding it very hard to find a doctor of any sort that specializes in this area of the body. There is a practitioner in Melbourne (Adrian Good) but he is on leave until November 2007.

Below I have outlined my symptoms and described the treatments that I've tried in the hopes that someone might have experienced something similar and might be willing to share their experiences/treatments with me.


Treatment at home/work

Professional treatment

Please feel free to email me with any suggestions for treatments or the names of some good health care professionals in Australia.
