Tailbone experience

I am a school student who had tailbone pain and could not sit down to study for long hours. I had already received a cortisone injection which had provided me temporary relief. After a month the pain returned and I therefore visited another doctor who advised me to visit Dr. Rajveer Singh (see Doctors and specialists in India). After ten physiotherapy sessions and 4-5 manipulations as well as sitting on the coccyx cushion I can sit down for longer with much less pain.

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.
