Coccyx pain
« on: February 07, 2011, 12:01:30 AM »
Three years ago I suffered a gym accident and as a result was left with sciatica down the left leg, pain around the coccyx area and the perineum.  The usual round of medical doctors, chiropractors, physios, osteopaths, and Bowen treatment followed, plus MRI scans.  L4/5,C1 was the diagnosed area but nothing really showed up on the scan.  Under load/ repetitive use like walking, the left knee locks but it is not a mechanical lock more like a nerve pain.  Both knees are minus cartilages as a result of previous sports injuries. The usual stretching exercises help but only for a limited time. 
I have used the double ball exercise four times with some success.  I have have also just begun using the yoga exercises.  I try to keep active but have given up on the gym as I found programmes they designed  aggravated the lower back.  Recommendations please Steve?

Was the injury to the leg muscles Murray. It sounds like a rotated pelvis but I can't be positive with what you have given me.

If you would like to post a pic of you standing taken from behind in shorts or underpants I will be happy to try and be more specific.

To post just select additional options just below this typing box and you can upload a photo file that isn't too big.
