Alignment and scar tissue treatment

Andrew, USA -

Posted 2018-02-25

I would like to help and share my success story. I saw numerous doctors, specialists, had x-rays and an MRI, and even went to a pelvic floor specialist... they all failed. A friend who is going to chiropractic school referred me to his doctor and mentor and that's when things changed. I had pain mostly when sitting that was only becoming worse with time. I literally felt like all hope was lost but still did not want to give into surgery so I went to see Dr. Chris Tsai in Burbank (see Doctors and specialists in the USA, California), thanks to my friend's recommendation. He informed me that he had seen this before and he thought he could help.

After just a couple of quick and very painful sessions I felt relief for the first time in 2 years! The treatment involves alignment and scar tissue treatment and is very painful for the scar tissue part but you actually look forward to it because you know it is helping.

If you think you have exhausted all your options, please see Dr. Chris or find a similar doctor in your state. Make sure the doctor you see can actually treat tailbone pain and has experience because most chiropractors cannot. It only took a couple of months to go from real pain when sitting, to now only discomfort and maybe soreness. Don't give up! Email me if you have any questions

Please keep my advice in mind before you give up or before you resort to surgery. Before I started feeling relief I could barely sit anywhere. The #1 thing that brought me relief was working on SCAR TISSUE and adjustments. I believe it was Graston technique or a form of it, yes, in my coccyx area. The pain was severe but short and after only a couple of sessions, I felt relief. The work was done by a sports chiropractor who would also make an adjustment tractioning the coccyx, in a favorable direction I believe. Now sometimes if I feel any pain coming back, I work the area myself with my fingers. It's hurts a little but by massaging I'm breaking up any scar tissue and I feel relief as soon as the next day. Just don't go too low because I believe you need to stay near the muscles surrounding the coccyx.

I also believe your gait can also contribute to your feet, knees, hips, and back being off balance and causing all kinds of problems/pain, maybe even coccyx discomfort. By gait, I mean the way you walk, your feet, over-pronation, flat feet, maybe one arch higher than the other, one leg longer than the other. Even your bed can be a contributor to your ailments. Having a bed that doesn't support your hip area anymore or that has a sagging area you may have not noticed. Or it simply doesn't keep your spine aligned while you sleep. Your bed should supply pressure relief and support. My coccyx pain and discomfort slowly developed over the course of a year and many doctors and even an MRI didn't help. The things I've listed above, I believe can help a lot of people.

I have posted multiple suggestions on here but this time I wanted to share a video that might be helpful. Myofascial Release is a technique that has helped me tremendously and while it's very painful it may help you as well.

Whether it's graston, a massage, or like in this video, just a ball can help. Just keep in mind that you can sit or lay on a tennis or golf ball while supporting yourself so not your full weight is on the ball. I would roll on it and massage and feel the pain of all those tight muscles. But with time it actually feels better and after a couple of days I roll on it again and there is less pain in those areas. (Hips, hamstrings, buttocks, lower back, and coccyx area.) All these muscles can contribute to your coccyx pain due tightness and scar tissue as well.
