Sitting on a Couch causes Coccyx Pain, Tailbone Pain, Coccydynia

  • Many people with coccyx pain find that couches are terrible for sitting, because even with a cushion the cushion just sinks into the softness of the couch and your tailbone still ends up contacting the sitting surface.
  • So, many people with tailbone pain will avoid couches or sofas.
  • Some people with tailbone pain will use a firm-plastic-shell type of cushion, since even if it sinks down the shell maintains it’s shape including the indentation creating a gap space below the coccyx.
  •  Relaxobak and BackJoy are two manufacturers that make these “shell” types of seats.
