Manual manipulation for the coccyx problem

I've been suffering from Coccyx pain for over a year with my GP offering me drugs and NHS physio basically telling me that I'd feel better over time. The thing is my pain was getting worse, not better and nothing seemed to be helping.

I went in to see Sarah Gill (see Doctors and specialists in the UK, Buckinghamshire) for a completely different problem after a recommendation from a friend. As part of the discussion about my issue I told her about my coccyx pain. When she examined me she explained that my coccyx was misaligned and not curving the way it should.

We discussed the manual manipulation for the coccyx problem which I went ahead with.

I've had 6 sessions with her since then which have included acupuncture and ultrasound and I can't describe how much better I feel. I'm not out of the woods yet but I'd say I'm 80% better. I can't thank Sarah enough and would recommend her to anybody.
