Falls on Snow and Ice: Tailbone Pain, Coccyx Pain

Falls on Snow and Ice can Cause or Worsen Tailbone Pain, Coccyx Pain

In the video below, Dr. Patrick Foye (Director of the Coccyx Pain Center, Tailbone Pain Center) discusses how slips and falls on the snow and ice can cause or worsen tailbone pain.

Here is the text, and the video is below.
  • Hi. I’m Dr. Patrick Foye and I’m an M.D., or medical doctor, and I’m the Director of the Coccyx Pain Center (Tailbone Pain Center) here in New Jersey, online at www.TailboneDoctor.com
  • And I’m standing here in a bit of a snowstorm, not too much although it’s pretty cold, maybe in the 20s Fahrenheit [minus 6 Celsius].
  • I’m here to talk about one of the things that causes tailbone pain or flares it up for people that have tailbone pain is people who slip and fall on the snow and ice.
  • So I guess this is a bit of a public service announcement.
  • If you have tailbone pain or even if you don’t then you want to avoid having tailbone pain, you definitely want to do what you can to avoid slips and falls.
  • Things you can do:
    • make sure that you have good footwear that has good traction.
    • Go slowly.
    • Go cautiously.
    • And keep an eye out for snow and ice. [He says, while being pelted by snow and ice!]
  • I have had many many patients over the years who their tailbone pain was initially caused by a slip and fall on the snow and ice.
  • Or, they had tailbone pain and did very very well when they came for treatment here and then did well for years and then had a slip and fall and the tailbone pain came back as bad as it was before.
  • So, again, just to caution you to watch out for the snow and ice if you are someone who has had tailbone pain in the past.
  • Okay. Hang in there.
  • Stay warm.
  • And if you are looking for more information on tailbone pain you can find me online at www.TailboneDoctor.com.

  • Okay. Thank you. Bye-bye now.
