SEATED Coccyx X-rays Show Abnormalities Missed by Regular Standing X-rays, for Tailbone Pain

Many people ask me  why their coccyx x-rays (tailbone x-rays) looked totally normal  even though they’re suffering from severe coccyx pain (tailbone pain, coccydynia).

Usually, the answer is that unfortunately their previous x-rays did not include any evaluation of the coccyx bones while they were sitting.

This video shows an example of actual x-rays where the routine coccyx x-rays (done while standing)  were normal, but the seated x-rays showed a severe 100%  dislocation.

Here is the video link:

Pudendal Nerve Pain versus Coccyx Pain, Tailbone Pain

I was recently asked how do physicians distinguish between pudendal nerve pain (also called “pudendal neuralgia”) and coccyx pain (also called tailbone pain, or coccydynia). Below is a very, very brief overview.

Genital involvement:
  • Pudendal nerve pain usually involves the genitalia region, whereas coccyx pain usually does not.
  • Genital symptoms may include pain, numbness or tingling. In males, these symptoms may occur at the scrotum and/or penis. In females, these symptoms may occur
Right, Left, or Midline:
  • Pudendal nerve pain is often unilateral, meaning that it often involves only one side of the pelvic. For example, it often involves only the right side or only the left side. (Still, some cases of pudendal nerve pain can be bilateral, meaning that both right and left are involved.
Tailbone tenderness on physical exam:
  • Pudendal nerve pain usually has no significant tenderness at the coccyx during coccyx palpation on physical exam, whereas coccyx pain usually does have focal tenderness at the coccyx during coccyx palpation on physical exam.
Location of the pain/symptoms compared with the location of the anus:
  • Tailbone pain is located slightly above/behind the anus.
  • Pudendal nerve pain is located in front of the anus. (Basically, pudendal nerve symptoms can involve the anus or forwards from there.)
Pain with sitting:
  • This is an area of similarity between coccyx pain and pudendal nerve pain. Both of these conditions are often worse with sitting, and especially they are usually worse with sitting on a bicycle seat. Both are usually less painful sitting on a toilet seat rather than on a bicycle seat.

Tailbone Pain Awareness Day: November 15

“Tailbone Pain Awareness Day” is November 15
Goals of Tailbone Pain Awareness Day:
  • The goal of Tailbone Pain Awareness Day is to draw attention to tailbone pain (also called coccyx pain), and to offer educational materials, support, understanding, and compassion for people suffering from tailbone pain.
  • Goals also include providing useful educational materials for people suffering from tailbone pain and for their treating clinicians (who, unfortunately, often do not have much expertise in treating tailbone problems).
History of Tailbone Pain Awareness Day:
  • Tailbone Pain Awareness Day is an internationally-recognized day, November 15, each year.
  • The first such day was started in 2018 by Patrick Foye, M.D., Director of the Tailbone Pain Center at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in the United States. After evaluating and treating thousands of patients with tailbone pain over the prior 20 years, Dr. Foye initiated this campaign to shed light on this condition which is so commonly misunderstood, under-diagnosed, under-treated, and under-appreciated.

Dr. Foye choose November 15 based on math:

  • Dr. Foye choose November 15 based on mathematically calculating what percent of the spinal vertebral bones were represented by the coccyx at the end of the spine.
  • The human spine (vertebral column)  is made up of a series of vertebral bones stacked up one on top of the other. The number of vertebral bones varies based on each region of the spine. The cervical spine (neck) has 7 vertebral bones. The thoracic spine has 12. The lumbar spine has 5. The sacrum has 5. The coccyx has 3-to-5 (average is 4).
  • This means that there are typically 33 vertebral bones in the human spine: 29 above the coccyx and 4 at the coccyx. That makes 29 + 4 = 33 spinal bones in total.
  • Ignoring the coccyx (which, unfortunately, many clinicians do) means focusing only on 29 of the 33 spinal bones, which is about 87%.
  • So, ignoring the coccyx means ignoring the lowest 13% of the human spine.
  • Similarly, this would be like ignoring the last 13% of the calendar year. So…. that would be like ignoring the part of the year after November 15. Imagine all the holidays, festivities, gatherings, etc. that you would miss out on if your year ended on November 15!
