Healing a Broken Tailbone

Mending a broken tailbone is not easy. As a matter of fact, other than managing pain and keeping off your dairiarre, there is nothing medically that can be done.

For those who sit to work this poses a huge problem.

I know, because two weeks ago I fell down my wooden stairs and landed on the edge of a stair rung right on my tailbone. The pain was excruciating. After I used my back as a sled to slide the remaining way down, I laid there and cried for at least ten minutes before I could even move.

Going to the doctor and getting an x-ray only confirms the tragedy. Yes, tailbone broken. No, there is no treatment.

I remember when I was little my mom broke her tailbone and carried around a little blow up ring for the pool. But I have come up with an even better solution. I purchased and have been using a travel neck pillow.

The Perfect Pillow to use for a Broken Tailbone:

  • Buy a travel neck pillow that has the little bean bag beads or is filled with air.

  • Do not buy a memory foam neck pillow as it will smash all the way down when sat on and will not work.

  • Place open void or “front” of neck pillow towards tailbone.

  • The “back” of the neck pillow will be towards your thighs.

  • Sit and feel the relief…ahhhh…

  • Your tailbone will lay nicely in the voided area.

It can take up to six months to fully recover from a broken tailbone. My new little neck pillow will be my travel companion for quite some time. I especially love sitting on it when I am driving my truck. Driving around as the Mom Taxi was quite painful before buying my neck pillow. This solution has really helped.
