I injured my tailbone during the delivery of my baby.
My OB suggested that I bruised my tailbone.
I suffered with terrible pain for 3 weeks, then I decided to see a chiropractor.
He took xrays and discovered that my tailbone was actually dislocated and my sacrum was also crooked which caused one leg appear to be longer than the other. He then popped my tailbone back into place and adjusted my sacrum and was confident that my pain would go away within a couple of days.
Pain still there a week later, and went back in for the second adjustment. Again, confident that pain should subside.
Well, here I am still in pain.
I called him and he said my muscles and nerved need time to heal and the pain should subside.
I feel no difference in the source of the pain or the intensity of the pain.
Is my Chiropractor giving me the right treatment?
Why would my tailbone still hurt so bad.
I have a hard time sitting without pain and getting up from a seated position without pain.
Walking and laying down is not a problem.
I am desperate for answers and treatment.
It is very difficult to care for 2 young children with this pain.
