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.
