Coccyx doctor recommendation for Finland

Casper -

I fell down sitting on my tailbone in the summer of 2002. X-rays clearly show a hypermobile coccyx. The last 2 bits are bending inwards more than they should when I sit. I've had 3 cortisone injections now with fairly good results. Constant pain is gone, but sitting is still out of the question. So something more probably needs to be done to get me back to normal.

I'd like to recommend an excellent doctor for coccydynia here in Finland. I've been through 4 or 5 different doctors for the past 9 months, and now I know I've found the right one. His name is Jukka Pekka Kouri, and he can be reached in Helsinki in a place called Invalidisäätiö Orton.

You only need to mention that you have pain in the tailbone and he will immediately know what you are going through. There is absolutely no need to go through the standard long winding explanations.

He knows all the treatment options from physical therapy, manipulation, cortisone injections (with or without fluoroscopy), surgery, and new methods to inhibit pain in the nerves connected to the injured coccyx area.
