Steroid injections did not work, 90-95% pain-free after manipulation

I had been struggling with coccyx pain for a number of years and had been treated with steroid injections. After my third injection failed to provide any relief I was told that I would need surgery to remove my coccyx.

At this point I went to see Dr Michael Durtnall (see Doctors and specialists in the UK, London). I have been having appointments with Michael for about a year and while it is a bit of a trek, it has been worth it. Michael has managed to unlock my coccyx and increase its mobility. I am now able to sit without pain and in fact I am pain free most of the time (90-95%). The only regret that I have is that I did not see him sooner! I would highly recommend Michael to anyone suffering with coccyx pain.

The coccyx is great - no trouble at all. In fact I have been completely pain free for 3-4 months. Prior to that occasional low grade pain but nothing more.
