I have suffered from tail bone pain for over twenty years

I just found this website. It is good to know I am not alone in my pain. Although I wish none of us had to go through this. I have suffered from tail bone pain for over twenty years and have gone through physical therapy, aqua therapy, medications, and nerve blocks. Nerve blocks help for a short time but not long enough. Aqua therapy helps some. Medications are useless. All the physicians I have spoken to say there is nothing they can do to correct the problem. I sit on a ball while at a computer. Even took one to work. Other times, the only other chair I sit in is a director's chair.

I drive a Honda CRV which has nice high seats and a straight back. It is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever had. I still have to use a cut out cushion which makes short rides bearable. I haven't found anything that makes long rides bearable but am planning on trying some of the inflatable or neck cushions.

I will soon be moving near Gainesville and may check into Clear Passage Therapies to see if they can help.
