Tailbone Pain during Pregnancy or after Child Delivery.
A pregnant woman's body goes through many changes such as softening of the ligaments that are holding different structures of the pelvis. Loosening of the ligaments that attach the coccyx to the sacrum can lead to the misalignment of one or more coccyx segments.
The misalignment of the coccyx can cause pain during the pregnancy. Due to lack of care or delay in proper care to align the coccyx, tailbone pain can get worse or complicate as the pregnancy continues.
Pregnant women cannot receive an X-ray examination which can present a challenge for health care practitioners. However, the experienced doctor is able to overcome such diagnostic challenge
The coccyx misalignment can become more complicated after a natural vaginal delivery due to the mechanical forces that are applied to the pelvic region during the delivery.
Some women who have never experienced tailbone pain previously, might have developed tailbone pain after the childbirth. If the tailbone pain continues two weeks after the delivery, it is highly recommended to seek professional care in order to avoid complications or needless extended suffering.
