Back pain is a common cause of disability. While pain can occur anywhere along the spine, pain is most common in the lower part of the back. Conservative treatments are typically tried in an attempt to find pain relief. Anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and assistive equipment can help.
Taking pressure off of the lower back is essential. A coccyx cushion can take pressure away from the lower spine, tailbone, and sacroiliac joints. There are various designs of coccyx cushion -- but it's the cut-out that distributes weight away from the painful area. Try a coccyx cushion to see if you find relief.
