Suffered coccydynia since being pregnant with my first child

I have suffered with coccydynia since being pregnant with my first child 6 years ago, finding it painful to be seated and chronically painful to get up from being seated. I was prescribed with pain killers and steroid injections but I wasn't satisfied with merely masking the issue and I wanted the underlying displacement to be 'fixed'. My husband saw my desperation and scoured the internet for possible solutions and your website was invaluable. It wasn't long before he honed in on Michael Durtnall at the Sayer Clinic (see Doctors and specialists in the UK, London) and all the positive reviews persuaded me to pay him a visit.

The first appointment and x-rays confirmed the displacement and more importantly reassured me that I was not alone and that there was hope! 10 months on, my coccyx pain is 80% reduced and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I am enormously grateful to Michael for the significant improvement in my symptoms. I am now working with Marta Dias De Oliveira at the Sayer Clinic to deal with the referred issues with my pelvic floor. I thoroughly recommend the team at Sayer Clinics for their professionalism and empathy.
