Coccyx Cushion for Coccyx Pain
Perhaps the most obvious clinical benefit of a coccyx cushion is the fact that it provides pain relief for the lower back and coccyx area. This can be a particularly delicate and sensitive area when sitting for long periods and the cushions are designed to reduce the pressure on the base of the spine. Particularly helpful for people who work all day in a chair or sitting position.
Does a coccyx cushion work?
Coccyx cushions with an area cut-out to remove pressure from the coccyx can provide tailbone relief sitting. A coccyx cushion that also alters the pelvic position to redistribute pressure further forward, can be particularly helpful which is why the cushions are often wedge shaped.
Do I need a coccyx cushion?
A coccyx cushion can relieve tailbone pain symptoms for those sitting for extended periods of time. Your back posture can affect how your tailbone feels when you sit down. Sitting on this cushion will support your hips, thus increasing spine stability and reducing pressure on your tailbone. They are also very helpful if you have a coccyx injury or bruised coccyx bone.
Can sitting cause tailbone pain?
Sitting in one position for too long may cause your tailbone to tilt or become misaligned, adding pressure to the bones and joints in and around the coccyx. This can make it painful to sit after time but coccyx cushions can help make it more comfortable to sit for long periods.
How do you get rid of coccyx pain?
1. Lean forward while sitting down – use a coccyx wedge shaped cushion.
2. Sit on a doughnut-shaped pillow or coccyx wedge (V-shaped) cushion.
3. Apply heat or ice to the affected area.
