Question: What muscles cause coccyx pain?

Many pelvic floor muscles insert into the tailbone, so injuries to this area may affect them too. These muscles assist in defecation, running, walking, and moving the legs.

Can Tight muscles cause coccyx pain?

Muscle Spasm or Tightness โ€“ The pelvic floor, gluteus maximus, prirformis or adductor magnus muscles can cause tailbone pain. This cause of pain is distinguished from other causes because the pain eases, rather than intensifies, while sitting.

Which muscles attach to coccyx?

One of the key functions of the coccyx is as an attachment point for various structures. The gluteus maximus attaches to the coccyx, as does the levator ani muscle, which is a key component of the pelvic floor.

Can you pull a muscle in your coccyx?

If this motion is repeated many times, the muscles and ligaments around your coccyx can become strained and stretched. Straining your muscles and ligaments can permanently damage them. If this happens, your muscles will no longer be able to hold your coccyx in the correct position, causing pain and discomfort.

Why is my coccyx so painful?

Tailbone pain โ€” pain that occurs in or around the bony structure at the bottom of the spine (coccyx) โ€” can be caused by trauma to the coccyx during a fall, prolonged sitting on a hard or narrow surface, degenerative joint changes, or vaginal childbirth.

Is walking good for coccyx pain?

Sometimes, the pain can shoot all the way down your legs. Standing or walking should relieve the pressure on your tailbone and ease discomfort.
