Looking Below the Sacrococcygeal Joint in Patients with Coccyx Pain, Tailbone Pain

Today I was informed that my latest publication on coccyx pain has just been published by the Indian Journal of Orthopaedics.

The title is:

Looking Below the Sacrococcygeal Joint in Patients with Coccydynia (Coccyx Pain)
Our 3 main points:
  • When treating patients with tailbone pain (coccyx pain, coccydynia), unfortunately doctors often limit themselves to the sacrococcygeal joint (SCJ) and they fail to look lower than that.
  • Doctors often fail to consider the lower coccyx on imaging studies, or during physical exam, or  when providing treatments.
  • This oversight is a problem since the sacrococcygeal joint is usually NOT the site that is causing the tailbone pain. Instead, more often the source of tailbone pain is one of the other joints within the coccyx, or a distal coccyx bone spur .

Due to copyright, I don’t know if I can post the full publication here on my website, so here is the Journal’s Link to the article online: https://rdcu.be/b0jak

Below are the screenshots from the congratulations/announcement of the publication, as well as the publication header and citation.
