Abstract

Coccydynia is debilitating pain of the coccyx that substantially impacts quality of life. Although most cases resolve with conservative therapy, pain can become chronic and involve other anatomical areas. Treatment options include physical therapy, manual medicine, injection, and surgery with mixed results. Manual medicine options vary depending on provider and physical exam findings. Little is known about transrectal therapy. We present a case of a 21-year-old female with coccydynia and subsequent headaches that failed conventional work-up and conservative therapy but resolved with osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT).
