Comments from Dr. Robert S. Gotlin about treatment of coccydynia

I was referred to the www.coccyx.org site by a few patients. I practice in New York City (I direct the Orthopaedic Sports and Spine Rehabilitation Program at Beth Israel Medical Center). I treat a very large number of patients with coccygodynia and employ manual techniques along with injections when needed.

Recently, I tracked outcome results (manual treatment vs. conventional management-physical therapy/medications) of a group of such patients and we will publish these results later in the year.

I have been treating this entity for approximately 15 years and understand the frustration those inflicted with it have, especially when they cannot find a clinician understanding of this condition.
