I am going to beat this pain

I am going to beat this. - After looking at the research and finding out that the tailbone is bent too sharp in the case of ideopathic (unknown/unsure cause) coccydynia (about 25 degrees- that's a lot!!), and after reading about how some people have the tailbone pulled back and get relief, it has occurred to me that this is something I can do.

I have, in fact, figured out that I can pull back my tailbone with the surrounding tissue, instead of using a device or finger. I am not sure how to describe it, but I stand up (make sure you won't fall over) and lean backward and tighten the muscles- and then I feel the tailbone crack (like a knuckle, sort of) not just once, but I tighten as much as I can, and feel it pop three or four times. So, I know I am successfully moving it.

It's going to take some time, but I believe that I can correct my condition. Thank you for having this information available so that I was able to quickly figure out what was wrong and what to do (once I decided I needed to research the condition - the pain was starting to drive me nuts; I wish I had done it sooner)

Thank you very much

Phillip
