Internal manipulation made the situation worse

I wanted to share my experience with coccyx pain so that others would know what you do if they ever had pain of accident in coccyx area.

Actually, I had a bad accident followed by visiting a doctor who did an internal manipulation to me and the situation got worse. The bone was fused and locked and was not able to move. Whenever I sit I have pain. I became worse and worse actually previously was better. I regret having that manipulation I wish I could have prevented it.

I realized that doctor was not experienced in coccyx area and that he did it by force and fused it. I started looking for an experienced doctor who could help me fix that. I found doctor Michael Durtnall at Sayer clinics in London (see Doctors and specialists in the UK, London). He helped me a lot, he is an experienced doctor whom I wish I could have met long time again. Now, I am better 75 percent than before.

Thanks to Dr. Michael. Hope everybody will benefit from my experience.

Note from Jon Miles:

I emailed more than a year after this story was posted, to ask for an update, as the long-term outcome of treatment is of great interest. In this case I did not get a reply.
