Are you finding it difficult to sit due to pain in the tailbone? The tailbone tends to heal slowly, making pain relief treatments popular among patients experiencing tailbone pain. The Pain Management Center offers these treatments to the residents of Hamilton, Linwood, Turnersville and Voorhees, NJ.
What is Tailbone Pain?
Tailbone pain is typically caused by coccydynia, or the inflammation of the tailbone. Coccydynia is usually caused by some sort of injury that damages the tailbone and causes inflammation. Although tailbone injuries will heal over time, they can make it difficult to sit comfortably and even perform certain activities. For these reasons, patients often choose to pursue treatment in order to soothe inflammation and relieve pain in the tailbone. The Pain Management Center specializes in treating tailbone pain, so we are prepared to provide you with an effective solution for pain relief.
How is Tailbone Pain Treated?
Some of the best ways to manage tailbone pain are done at home without the need to visit a medical professional. By resting, taking over-the-counter pain medications, and using a cushion when sitting, many patients are able to manage their symptoms until the tailbone heals. However, patients with chronic or severe coccydynia may desire professional care to aid in pain relief. For these patients, we may recommend nerve block injections such as a ganglion impar block. These injections will block pain signals from reaching the brain, effectively eliminating pain and other sensations. During your initial visit, we will assess your condition in order to recommend the treatment that is best for you.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Tailbone Pain Treatment?
The results from your tailbone pain treatment will depend on the treatment method used, as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your tailbone pain treatment.
