    coccyx pain
    lclibby posted:
    I don't know what I did about six months ago but whatever it was it set off the coccyx pain that has been 24//7 and nothing the doctors did helped till about a week ago when I thought about the tens unit I had and dug it out to use it on my low back ache but to my surprise when I was done the pain in the coccyx was gone for the first time in six months. I now use it twice a day it did more than all the doctors.

    Interesting. I know the coccyx can take a long time to heal if bruised.

    I wonder if you had muscles locked up and the TENS worked and allowed them to release? I'm completely guessing and happy to hear it worked!

    Tens unit are great.
