The tailbone (or the coccyx) can become very painful if it’s injured or fractured. Here are 7 simple ways to help relieve coccyx or tailbone pain.
For the first stretch for tailbone pain, you will start in quadruped or all fours. Open up your knees, but bring your feet slightly together. Lean back into a stretch, but not all the way to your feet. Then you can gently take your hips side to side.
Next, staying in quadruped, you will do a cat/dog or cat/cow to stretch the hips and pelvis. Then you can go back into a full child’s pose or prayer stretch. The further down you go, the better stretch you will get. After that, you can lie all the way down on your stomach, and come up into a cobra stretch. If that is too much, you can start with a prone prop.
For the last stretch for coccyx and tailbone pain, roll over onto your back, and do trunk rotations and bridges.
