Coccyx Adjustment - A Chiropractic Treatment
Coccyx adjustment is a conservative method to align the coccyx segments and, restore motion to the coccyx joints relieving the tailbone pain without drugs or surgery.
Coccyx adjustment, manipulation and manual therapy refer to the procedures in which the misaligned coccyx is physically moved toward the normal alignment position.
Chiropractic adjustment can be provided externally or internally to correct a coccyx misalignment.
External Adjustment of the coccyx can be provided by hand or with Chiropractic adjustment instruments. This is the procedure when coccyx is adjusted over the skin close to anal area.
Internal Adjustment is provided through the anus and rectum. This procedure is very similar to the men’s prostate examination. A lubricated and gloved finger is inserted in the rectum to examine and adjust the coccyx.
