What is Coccyx Contusion?

Description of the condition

A coccyx contusion is an injury to the coccyx, which is the bottom part of the spine. The coccyx is a small bone located at the end of the spinal column. A coccyx contusion occurs when this bone is damaged or bruised.


  • Acute coccyx contusion
  • Chronic coccyx contusion


Symptoms of coccyx contusion may include pain, worsening when sitting or standing up, swelling, and bruising in the area of the coccyx.


A coccyx contusion can occur as a result of trauma from falling onto the coccyx area, a strong impact, or childbirth trauma.


Diagnosis of a coccyx contusion includes physical examination, X-rays, and MRI.


Treatment of a coccyx contusion includes the use of pain relievers, physiotherapy, massage, posture correction, and sometimes surgical intervention may be necessary.


To prevent a coccyx contusion, it is recommended to avoid trauma to the coccyx area, maintain good posture, and lead a healthy lifestyle.


The doctor treating coccyx contusions is an orthopedist or trauma surgeon.
