Pelvic floor treatment addresses coccydynia, or tailbone pain, by treating the muscles, ligaments and joints that have been strained with exercise and manual therapy.  Manual therapy is used to relax muscles which have spasmed in reaction to the pain.  When the spasm at first it is to protect you…but they keep spasming and won't relax, thus causing the pain. Putting pressure on the muscles and ligaments which attach to the coccyx usually helps the pain immensely.  Here is a picture of some of the muscles which attached to the coccyx:
