Tailbone Fractures take a Long Time to Heal

A tailbone fracture (“a broken coccyx”) takes longer to heal than fractures at most other body regions.

There are multiple reasons for this:

  • Unlike fractures at many other body regions, there is no cast, splint, or brace that can be put on a fractured tailbone.
  • Alike fractures at many other body regions, there is no way to avoid putting your body weight on the fracture (unless you totally avoid sitting for several weeks).
  • So, a tailbone fracture never really gets a chance to rest and recover the way that fractures at most other body regions do.
  • So, it is not surprising that much longer than fractures that most other body regions.
  • It’s also not surprising that tailbone fractures are more likely to go on to develop chronic, ongoing pain.
