A TRUE... Pain in the Arse...


Can you break your butt? Early this morning, while out on the motor boat with our rowing coach... I lost my balance, came flying off the seat and landed on the bottom of the boat on my butt...I did not think anything could hurt so much...and being mortified I just "sucked it up" and said NOTHING my poor Tailbone (Coccyx) ... I've heard it's not black and blue (yet)... any suggestions?!?!

Sue, you can definitely "break" your butt...the coccyx is a little leftover tail that we all have at the bottom of the spinal cord, and it can break off in a situation like this - you might want to have it x- rayed...and get a "donut" pillow to sit on. I'm not sure that there is much more you can do for it, but you might want to check it out. xxoo Sharon D, former Chiropractic Assistant :-)

My daughter cracked hers and she was donut bound for a while. Sucks I remember the pain she was in...screamed bloody hell.. It's been several years and it still bothers her..nothing you can do but time...

I have had a black and blue mark on my butt for a month! Don't know how I got it though... I certainly have enough padding there :)
