Current Treatments for Coccydynia

Current Treatments for Coccydynia

Abstract

Purpose of Review: Refractory cases of coccydynia can be functionally debilitating. Here, we summarize the latest advances in interventional options for coccydynia.

Recent Findings: The literature on treatments of coccydynia is sparse, and mostly limited to low-quality studies. Although some of these studies have demonstrated benefit from various treatment options, the lack of high-quality, prospective, controlled trials limits the ability to draw conclusions about efficacy.

Summary: Conservative treatment remains the mainstay of coccydynia. In refractory cases, invasive treatments may be considered, although larger, randomized studies are needed to establish clear efficacy.
