Coccydynia (Tailbone pain)…Pelvic Floor Treatment?

Falling on one's tailbone (coccyx) is pretty common…and. pretty. painful.  Getting tailbone pain treated effectively can often seem elusive.  If you have this, you may have tried many different options.  Have you tried Pelvic Rehabilitation physical therapy? Coccyx_-_animation03

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:

5 Tool Sport
UPPER EXTREMITY PLYOMETRICS (wait til the end 😂)
⠀⠀
Plyos are a mainstay exercise for athletes in the mid-to-late stages of rehab for upper or lower extremity injuries (or can also be used for prevention)😏. They begin to prepare the affected structures and tissues to tolerate forces and stress more closely related to sport. For the #thrower 🥎⚾️, we like to use these as a precursor before interval throwing programs.
⠀⠀
There are many ways of accomplishing this, but here we show how to use a rebounder/trampoline to achieve dynamic shoulder plyos.
1️⃣ Chest pass
2️⃣ Diagonals
3️⃣ Overhead chop
4️⃣ 0° IR
5️⃣ 90° IR
6️⃣ 0° ER
⠀⠀
All incorporate a controlled concentric to eccentric phase and have the added bonus of adjusting to an external object. What others do you like??
