Coccyx pain is often due to to a dislocation at one of the coccyx joints, or stiffness of one of the joints, or a spasm of the muscles attached to the coccyx. It can follow after falls, childbirth, repetitive strain or surgery or for no obvious reason. The pain can disappear by itself or with treatment, or it can continue for years, and may get worse. It is five times more common in women than men, probably because the female pelvis leaves the coccyx more exposed.
The coccyx consists of three to five bone segments which have thin disks between them or may be fused together. Sometimes the disks get damaged and the segments dislocate when you sit down. This repeated dislocation can cause chronic inflammation. In other cases there is a spur of bone on the end of the tailbone, and pressure on this causes the pain.
