Tailbone pain, acupuncture can help

Tailbone pain, acupuncture can help

The medical term of tailbone pain is coccydynia. It is caused by inflammation of tail bone area. It presents with pain and tenderness at the tip of the tailbone between the buttocks. The pain is often worsened by sitting. Tailbone pain is often caused by an injury, such as sitting for a long time or bike rides, but it may have unknown causes. Vaginal birth in women sometimes is the cause tailbone pain. The coccyx or pelvic bones injury is a risk factor and obesity is also a risk factor for getting tailbone pain. Secondary tailbone pain includes sciatica, infection such as shingles of the buttocks, pilonidal cysts, sacroiliitis, and fractured bone. The major symptoms are pain and local tenderness at the tailbone. This can lead to difficulty sitting or leaning against the buttocks. Along with the pain with sitting, there is typical tenderness at the tailbone area. Treatments include rest and sitting on a pillow, cushion, or buttock support; avoiding reinjury to the affected area, anti-inflammatory pain killers; cortisone injection; physical therapy with exercises and last not the least acupuncture.

Acupuncture reduces leg pain

Leg pain can be mild that comes and goes, or severe that makes it difficult to sleep and walk. The pain is often described as aching, throbbing or burning and it can be accompanied by numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. Leg pain can develop from leg injury, over exercise, tear or overuse. Problems that affect the blood vessels can also cause leg pain. These include peripheral arterial disorder, inflammation of a vein or blood clot etc. Another common cause of leg pain is the problem of low back where the nerve to the leg originates and then travels to the legs. For leg pain treatments, finding the cause is important and treatments depend on the causes. Acupuncture is used for the leg pain management.
