Tailbone Pain (Coccygodynia)
Chronic tailbone pain, also known as coccydynia, can be an extremely debilitating condition that affects a person’s quality of life. The tailbone, or coccyx, is located at the bottom of the spine and is responsible for supporting the body when we sit or stand.
Traditional treatments such as pain medication, physical therapy, or surgery may not always provide the relief patients need. However, there is a safe and effective solution available that is gaining popularity among pain specialists – the Ganglion Impar Block.
Ganglion Impar Block
A ganglion impar block is an injection of local anaesthetic medication and/or corticosteroid medication into the ganglion impar, a bundle of nerves located at the base of the spine. This procedure effectively blocks the transmission of pain signals from the tailbone to the brain, providing immediate relief from coccygodynia. The ganglion impar block is minimally invasive and can be performed as an outpatient procedure with little to no downtime.
